Local Control Approvals Oil And Gas Applications


Current law allows the director of the oil and gas conservation commission to delay the final determination regarding an oil and gas permit application pursuant to specified objective criteria. The bill repeals this authority and specifies that if a local government that has so-called "House Bill 1041 authority" approves an oil and gas application, the commission or director shall approve the application for a permit to drill.(Note: This summary applies to this bill as introduced.)
