West Virginia Pooling Bill Fails in Senate

Updating a previous post, The Intelligencer reports that the West Virginia Senate declined to consider legislation that would have allowed un-leased land to be included in drilling units.  Senator Brooks McCabe (D-Kanawha), who introduced Senate Bill No. 616, stated that “I don’t want to speculate whether it was for a lack of support, or if it was just introduced too late in the session.  It just never got any traction.”
