HB 1256Oil and Gas

Oil and Gas Facilities Distance From School Property

Yes is the pro-environment vote.
Description:

Oil and gas operations are currently required to be 1,000 feet away from school buildings, but not school property lines that encompass playgrounds and sports fields. This bill would have clarified that wells must be 1,000 feet away from a school’s property boundary, closing a loophole that puts children at risk.

Bill Sponsors: Representative Mike Foote, Senators Matt Jones and Irene Aguilar

House Vote: Passed 37-28 | Senate: Failed in Agriculture, Natural Resources, and Energy Committee
