Tell the Texas Railroad Commission not to railroad Texan’s property rights
Come to the public hearing on January 30th
|Where are Texans’ property rights going?|
Last week we sent an alert, urging you to send a letter to the Railroad Commission telling them not to railroad Texans’ property rights via new rules for the Mineral Interest Pooling Act (MIPA) – the law that authorizes forced pooling.
If you haven’t done so, it’s not too late to send a letter.
But even better than sending a letter, come say your piece in person.
WHAT: Railroad Commission hearing to consider whether to proceed with new forced pooling rules under MIPA
WHEN: January 30th at 9am
William B. Travis State Office Building, Room 1-111
1701 N. Congress Ave.
WHY: The reason the TRC is considering the rules now? Among other things, they want to legitimize railroading (hah!) small landowners — who want no part of production/leasing — into not just drilling, but PAYING for the drilling they don’t want. If the well isn’t profitable, new rules could wind up losing landowners money.
