Texas is the largest oil and gas producing state, and that production depends on Texas pipelines to deliver affordable energy to consumers. These energy supplies fuel the Texas miracle, which is made possible by a low tax, low regulation operating environment that differentiates us from places like California or New York. Senate Bill 421 and its companion bill, House Bill 991, would create new and unnecessary regulations on Texas pipelines that will benefit trial lawyers at the expense of Texas energy.
Natural gas-fired power plants emit very few local pollutants, and areas that have switched to natural gas have seen major air quality benefits. Natural gas is clean burning and has helped lower pollution levels and improve the health of communities across the United States. Despite false claims and accusations from extreme environmentalists, fracking and natural gas help our environment. Check out this list to find out how.
Pipelines are the safest, most environmentally responsible method of transporting oil and natural gas, yet activists have attempted to block them at every turn. This order will improve predictability in permitting, allowing for the safe transportation of natural resources to continue.
New pipeline infrastructure is critical for Texas. But some lawmakers in Austin are looking to add more regulations on Texas pipelines with Senate Bill 421 and House Bill 991 which would benefit trial lawyers at the expense of Texas energy.
