Help stop a state power grab of local oversight of the oil & gas industry
Do you want an oil or gas well next to schools, playgrounds, or in your backyard?
Rep. Van Taylor, who lives where drilling or fracking isn’t, has authored a bill to grab local controls of oil & gas development and hand them to a failed state agency: the Texas Railroad Commission.
Taylor lives on an oil company inheritance, so its no surprise that his bill would help billion-dollar corporations, not regular Texans!

His bill would be a disaster for Texas cities, forcing communities to defer to state regulations which allow drilling and fracking within 200 ft. of a habitable structure — including homes, schools, churches etc.
TAKE ACTION: HB 1496 is pending approval by the Land and Resource Management Committee. Send the Committee a strong message that Texans won’t stand for this government power grab.
