Legislature 2010: It's a Gas, Man

The Associated Press reports on several legislative proposals arising from West Virginia's start-and-stop natural gas industry.

"Bills introduced in the Senate and House this week would require that owners be notified before drilling companies with mineral rights apply for permits to build structures such as wells or pipelines on their land," the article said.

The Senate, meanwhile, could hold a twice-delayed vote "on a measure addressing the wastewater that results from drilling into underground shale for natural gas," AP reported.
