The HBJ Features Comments from Attorney Royce Poinsett in its Texas Legislative Preview

12.22.14

Houston Business Journal featured the top five energy-related issues expected to bring bills and debate to the Texas Legislature in the upcoming session. Gardere Senior Attorney Royce Poinsett spoke with the publication about these issues, which included fracking, shale roads, water, tax and renaming the Texas Railroad Commission.

Mr. Poinsett said he expects the Legislature to address the "wildfire of local (fracking ban) proposals spreading across Texas." He added that he also expects bills to require energy companies to do more water recycling, while the energy sector wants to ease regulations on the use of more brackish water in fracking.

Search Tips:

You may use the wildcard symbol (*) as a root expander.  A search for "anti*" will find not only "anti", but also "anti-trust", "antique", etc.

Entering two terms together in a search field will behave as though an "OR" is being used.  For example, entering "Antique Motorcars" as a Client Name search will find results with either word in the Client Name.

Operators

AND and OR may be used in a search.  Note: they must be capitalized, e.g., "Project AND Finance." 

The + and - sign operators may be used.  The + sign indicates that the term immediately following is required, while the - sign indicates to omit results that contain that term. E.g., "+real -estate" says results must have "real" but not "estate".

To perform an exact phrase search, surround your search phrase with quotation marks.  For example, "Project Finance".

Searches are not case sensitive.
