One of the few bills to make it through this legislative session that would actually help citizens in the Barnett Shale was vetoed by Governor

Barnett Shale rights of way bill among 37 vetoed by Perry
In vetoing the Barnett Shale bill sponsored by state Sen. Wendy Davis, D-Fort Worth, Perry said he agreed that the measure “would provide a benefit to communities and reduce the impact on private property owners.” But, he said, the measure, Senate Bill 686, conflicted with a similar bill he signed into law that permits gas corporations to lay and maintain lines under public rights of way.
Davis’ bill was a top priority for Fort Worth during the legislative session and was aimed at easing disruptions in residential areas as a result of natural gas drilling.

Governor Perry and Doug McKlinko would make a great team.
I can't believe that we are letting the gas companies use our public road right-of-way for the laying of pipelines! Wonder what Lady Bird Johnson would say about that? What politicians we have!
