Today the Senate approved HB 1026 which requires that a majority of those on the Arkansas Oil and Gas Commission have experience in the oil and gas industry. So, again, it requires that oil and gas industry insiders be in charge of regulating oil and gas operations in the state (or that the foxes guard the hen house). The governor has said he doesn't see the danger. A lot of environmental groups across the state made a last-ditch effort to sway the vote, but to no avail. It now goes back to the House because it was amended in the Senate.
