FINAL REPORT from the 2015 Regional Commission to Study and Address Oil and Gas Well Drilling and Exploration.
Friday, Jan. 8th

INTRODUCTION

The Regional Commission to Study and Address Oil and Gas Well Drilling and Exploration (“Regional Commission” or “Commission”) was formed in January 2015 and is represented by many viewpoints, both pro and con, regarding oil and gas drilling. Members of the Commission and their respective communities are found in Exhibit XVII attached. The Commission recognizes the national importance of energy independence and is not intending to either encourage or discourage drilling. Rather, the Commission was formed to serve as a forum for education and discussion in order to formulate a regional response to safeguard the health, safety, and welfare of the region’s residents in connection with the extraction of hydrocarbons in the Commission’s planning area.
