Dear fellow Texan,
Efforts to shut down or handicap Texas energy providers are underway in North Texas, and will inevitably hurt the local economy. The natural gas industry has been a pillar of our state’s economy for decades and provides nearly 1.3 million jobs for Texans. (Chesapeake Energy) southlake.JPGIn Southlake, city council members are debating whether to allow natural gas drilling in the Barnett Shale area, and it’s important that we continue to move forward in a timely manner.
The city council hearing on this issue happens TOMORROW – and it’s important that the council members hear from you!
Texas continues to lead the nation in the safe and productive development of this clean-burning energy alternative. In fact, about 3/10 of total U.S. natural gas production occurs in Texas, making it the nation’s leading producer of this American energy.
Please take a moment to send a letter to your city council members urging them to say “YES” to beneficial natural gas drilling – it is of the upmost importance! We depend on affordable energy to cook our food, fuel our cars and keep the lights on. If the council rejects this proposal, it would set a dangerous precedent that would hamper local energy projects that provide us with the vital domestic resources that we rely on daily.
The homegrown abundant gas reserves available in the Barnett Shale stand ready to meet Texas’ energy needs today and for future generations.

Americans for Prosperity is a grassroots organization of taxpayer advocates. [No it’s not! It is a group of easily manipulated people who believe propaganda paid for by the billionaire Koch Brothers.]
So, hurry up and get on with the drilling because Chesapeake has already sold that gas to China.
