URGENT!!!! HB2110 May Be Attached To Another Senate Bill

We had an e-mail forwarded to us concerning HB2110. There is a possibility it will be attached to SB18 (an eminent domain bill). Below is the wording from the e-mail and other possibilities. It is important now more than ever to contact our Senate and House Contacts... ASAP!!!!!

"We need to have about over 500 calls or emails to these guys today opposing any bill that would take away our Municipality’s control over ordinances, especially gas & oil drilling ordinances that protect our residents.

Subject: Possible vehicles

I still think SB 18 will be the best vehicle. Currently it is in House committee but it is reportedly coming out this Friday.
SB 1023 also is an eminent domain bill but industry is killing it and it is no threat.
HB 257
HB 179
HB 3557
HB 4618
HB 2105

(email 2)
These bills are possible vehicles.

This late in the session House members try to resurrect their bills that didn't make it past last weeks deadline. SB18, the eminent domain vehicle is drawing bills like flies to honey. One of them is HB2110 which died on the calendar last week. (the bill that protects local control related to gas and oil drilling)."
