On Dec. 14, RAFI is co-sponsoring a workshop in Sanford, NC, for landowners who have leased their land, those considering a lease and anyone concerned about landowner rights and the impacts of natural gas and hydrofracking.
Because of the NC’s compulsory pooling law, RAFI and other advocates were concerned about the potential threats to landowner rights. The “Hydraulic Fracturing: Where Are We Now?,” presentation embedded below […]
Compulsory pooling is “a particularly bad infringement on landowners’ ability to decide what to do with their own resource,” said James Robinson, director of the RAFI’s Landowner Rights and Fracking Project.
RAFI is urging landowners and community members, especially from Lee, Moore and Chatham Counties, to attend the meeting and voice their opinions tomorrow at the Compulsory Pooling Study Group’s public meeting.
UPDATE: House rejects Farm Bill, June 20 | Years, even decades, of work can come down to a 5-minute vote in an obscure committee. We hope that you will trust us, and our partners, that, when we ask you to take action on the Farm Bill, it is because that action is important and effective.
