2016 House Bill 5389

Restrict oil and gas drilling in large counties

Introduced in the House

Feb. 18, 2016

Introduced by Rep. Pete Lucido (R-36)

To prohibit oil and gas wells within 1,320 feet of a residential building in Oakland, Macomb and Wayne Counties, unless there is a hearing in the community. The bill also appears to give local governments to power to enact regulations that could effectively ban the wells.

Referred to the Committee on Energy Policy
