  • Other states, such as North Dakota, are struggling with costs associated with fracturing operations such as road repairs and construction and other infrastructure needs created by the industry.

Purpose of the bill: To levy the production tax when oil and gas production is at its peak. Production tax revenue is increased by eliminating the lower taxation rate “give away” to the industry for the first 24 months.

Solution: Increase revenue to our State by collecting additional taxes on oil and gas production from fracturing operations.  Please co-sponsor and support SB3230.
