The oil and natural gas industry supports thousands of jobs and is a key source of much needed revenue.

Oil and natural gas activity is rebounding -- and that's good news.

Our lawmakers need to pass legislation that will maximize the benefits the industry can provide. Modernized mineral development laws will benefit all West Virginians by creating more jobs and a stable tax base. 

That's why we're rallying in Charleston on Wednesday, February 21st, at 10am-11am

 

WE NEED YOU TO JOIN US!
