Landowners Rally for Gas Royalites

02.19.14 | FL News Team

Crowds in Bradford county, PA  gathered to rally for landowner's rights. As gas companies pocket up to ninety percent of lease-holders' royalty money, an addition to the  oil and gas lease act makes it illegal to deduct money from landowners. County Commissioner Doug Mclinko vows to support lease holders and sees the gas industry as an important natural resource. If passed the bill would guarantee landowners  12 percent in gas royalties. The bill will be up for a hearing in March.
