No pro-urban drilling candidates are even running in FloMo this year because they got beat so bad last year. They out spent the competition 10 to 1 and still lost by 20% in a 70% Republican town. Gas Mafia meet Flower Power.
Love the new town slogan – "Flower Power."
Concerned with what the state is doing though and if municipally will have any control if the new legislation is passed.
So I wasn't really clear about what the status of that unincorporated land between FM and Bartonville is. Is Williams going to have their way?
The last I heard (someone correct me if am wrong), Bartonville is going to annex the land.
It appears they are putting a compressor station there…. Possibly more equipment, who knows!
Anything that was already in the works would have vested rights, but the town could impose restrictions on future permits.
