2014 House Bill 5254

Senate Roll Call 110: Passed

To revise the state law imposing permit requirements on gas, oil and other pipelines, so it also applies to pipelines carrying carbon dioxide used to produce oil and gas in secondary or “enhanced recovery’ operations. Senate Bill 5255 and 5256 would apply property condemnation powers and the state preemption of local pipeline restrictions to these pipelines. See also House Bill 4885, which would cut the tax on oil and gas extracted using enhanced recovery.
