HB 205 Mining and drilling; regulate exploration and extraction of gas and oil; provisions

Voted on Thursday February 23, 2017

Michael Caldwell's thoughts

There is currently no regulatory authority or regulation around the practice of fracking in Georgia. This legislation creates a trigger by which an Oil and Gas Board can be established under the Board of Natural Resources to issue drilling permits and regulate the practice.
