I’m been thrilled with the DRC’s reporting in this series so far but I have to take issue with a few points in this one. I don’t have much time right now so…
Texas regulation is not adequate. HOLY COW! You can’t allow someone to make such a cray statement and not present the other side. Texas has some of the most lax regulation in the US and we have NO regulation specific to hydraulic fracturing.
Also, HB 3328 will not require disclosure. Wash, rinse, repeat…

Conoco Philips, Chevron, and Exxon Mobil paid nothing in taxes in 2009.
Looks like austerity measures don't apply to oil and gas like every other rule. This country is so corrupt that the most profitable corporations are paid by our government to evade their taxes.
God it would be so beautiful if every American refused to pay their taxes for one year. What would the government do? Impose a no fly zone over America?? Seriously everyone should refuse to pay taxes until GE and Boeing pay their fair share, not to mention all of the members of Obama's cabinet that skipped out on their taxes for years.
Can we say equal protection, or in this case equal taxation, of course it's not even equal. If they paid $1 it would be infinitely more than they pay now.
Special interests have run amuck.
