Gas Drilling In Dallas Hits Another Hurdle

Mar 21, 2013

For the second time the Dallas City Plan Commission has rejected gas drilling permits on city parkland in Northwest Dallas.   

The vote followed three hours of sometimes heated debate and discussion.

Now the issue goes to the full city council, and because of today’s defeat a super majority of the council – 12 members- would have to approve the permits before the first wells could be drilled.
