CHARLESTON, W.Va. — The controversial “co-tenancy bill” quickly moved in and out of the Senate Judiciary Committee Tuesday evening.
House Bill 4268, which would allow drilling on land if the majority — or 75 percent — of owners gave consent, passed the committee with a voice vote and moves to the Senate floor.
“What’s clear is if we pass this the people … are stuck,” he said. The amendment, he said, “will not change the substance of the bill whatsoever.”
