Shale oil drilling steals from school children
Rep. Lon Burnam of Fort Worth makes a valid argument that those drilling for gas in the Barnett Shale, those drillers that Dallas City Councilmanm Dave Neumann is carrying water for, are not only destroying our environment but they also “owe our children” $2.4 billion. Why? Because for some crazy reason (see post below as another example) our state leaders think it’s better to cut funding for public schools than to ask these drillers to pay any taxes.
