Many thanks to the Carlsbad Current-Argus for covering House Bill 315 (request for funding for road repairs and maintenance in oil-and-gas- producing counties of the state). I do want to let everyone know that the $4.8 billion dollar figure I spoke of during the phone interview refers to PRODUCTION VALUE of oil and gas in Eddy County, not profit. In all fairness to the newspaper reporter, I did mention rather quickly a slew of data, facts, and figures, with the press deadline being just minutes away.
You can support HB 315 by going to my Web site-- cathrynnbrown.com--and taking the roads survey on the home page. I plan to compile your comments and present them to the committees.
