We need your HELP!

One of our bills, HB4090, is stuck in committee! We need the bill placed on the Senate Finance agenda ASAP! 

H.B. 4090: Creating the Oil and Gas Abandoned Well Plugging Fund reduces the severance tax on low producing wells (5 to 60,000 MCF of gas a day) to 2.5% and dedicates that remaining 2.5% to plugging orphaned wells. The creating of this fund would dedicate a stream of money to go towards plugging abandoned and orphaned wells! 

CALL OR EMAIL SENATOR BLAIR AND ASK HIM TO PLACE HB4090 ON HIS AGENDA ASAP. Contact info in the link! 

Thank you!
