Pimp Daddy Got a Big Pipe (he thinks)
Plano, Texas can be proud to now say that one of their own, has chosen to be in bed with the gas industry and is in the process of paving the way to bring shale gas drilling to your neighborhood without your consent. In short, Texas State Rep. Van Taylor is now acting like a pimp for the gas industry and is proudly waving his powerful pipe around to please the gas industry.
Fellow legislators were in awe when on Tuesday, Taylor authored HB1496 that would allow the gas industry to pretty much set up anywhere they want to drill, and your city/community can’t do anything about it. Taylor has got plenty of “benjamins” in his pants as he is one of the RICHEST of the lawmakers in the State of Texas via Denbury Resources.
The only effect that any city/community would have control over are “visual aesthetics,” “noise abatement” and “hours of operation”. Everything else would be in the control of the State of Texas. YOU can tell Taylor what you think about his actions…………………….
