Andrew--- WOW I am happy your are member of this site and Thank You for the time you spend to summarize this Bill. It appears it can be a good Bill for the Mineral Owner with some amendments. If you live in Texas and I understand you do it would be Great if you would email or fax this summary with your comments to each member of HERC. Maybe they will conside admending some of Bill. Would that be possible please, again thanks for your time (Time is MONEY for Attorney). Hope you can forward to the each Committee member
Considering that I read the entire bill and listed all the provisions that I thought were good or bad, I would hardly call it "cherry picking." After reading the bill as a whole I think it would be a net positive for mineral owners from the current state of affairs. I respect that you may disagree, but I'm struggling to see what it is that you see wrong with this bill. I think it will result in substantially greater bargaining power, especially for small mineral owners.
intrepid---agree if it's not good enough for the State's Minerals it's probably not good for Texas Citizens IMO
-interpid--- just got off phone with Rep Crownover Office in Austin , Vice Chair of HCER Committee and they say phones calls > 95% against HB 100 and in their opinion the Bill will DIE in committee :) Very nice conversation of 5 minutes Chairman office Jeff Keller not taking call today.NARO Also against Bill and has recently activated it's Lobbist against the Bill--- So IMO will DIE tomorrow !! :)
