Community and environmental groups in Dallas are banding together to oppose the recommendations of the city’s natural gas drilling task force.
Gas companies that drill in Arlington will now have to pay the city a $2,500 fee, per well, every year. The money will go toward properly preparing and training firefighters.
While the Lewisville School Board doesn’t want gas wells near schools in the district, the board will vote on a backup plan Monday night.
With proposed budget cuts, some Texas lawmakers are now searching to find new sources of money. One thing that could generate billions would be the elimination of tax breaks on natural gas wells in the Barnett Shale.
A vapor cloud linked to a natural gas well forced some traffic to be rerouted in Fort Worth, as a precaution.
