Sen. Ross Tolleson Attends National Conference on Environment

Sen. Ross Tolleson Attends National Conference on Environment

 

Sen. Ross Tolleson (R-Perry) attended the National Conference of State Legislators (NCSL) Environment 2013 Spring Forum on May 2-4 in Denver, Colo.  The forum focused around hydraulic fracturing and horizontal drilling, but also provided policymakers from across the country with the opportunity to exchange ideas on issues regarding the environment.

“As our country continues to explore innovative ways to utilize our natural resources, these forums allow us to meet and discuss what best suits our state’s needs,” said Sen. Tolleson.  “Since the price of natural gas continues to rise, we must keep our minds open to new ways of unlocking this precious resource.  By learning more about infrastructure, we can preserve our natural resources for the future while also protecting them right now.”
