Representative Brian Egolf ( firstname.lastname@example.org) introduced his surface owner bill today in the House. It is House Bill 219.
This is the bill that gives surface owners notice before the minerals beneath them are leased by an oil company, notice of who owns the minerals, and an opportunity to use a thirty day period to buy the minerals from the mineral owner.
It’s rumored that passage of this bill “looks good.”
