Uncertainty is a hallmark of the Free Market system.  Further, the ‘uncertainty’ Mr. Scott bemoans (if such exists in any undue amount) is not manifesting in the gaspatch, hitting record years in Colorado.  Meanwhile, violations ARE occurring—a still leaking pipe of undisclosed ‘;hydrocarbons’ adjacent to a major drainage into the CO just as runoff season begins; a ‘flowback’ incident gushing 85000 k of a ‘green’ fracking fluid, etc. etc. etc.  I am sure Mr. Scott is safe in his district, I am not sure his constituents are.

The point of the competitive leasing process is to generate more revenues for American taxpayers and the protect American resources, not make it easier for oil and gas companies to block the public from input onto public lands or bolster private sector profit.
