Mr.Scott would do well to do a little research by reading publications not beholden to oil and gas.  The Oil and Gas companies are stealing the people’s resources.  The royalties they pay are pathetic and the amounts they pay for leasing are nowhere near what is owed to the taxpayers.  Increasing drill activity has a growing and concerned populace that are not just anti-fracking, they are people that live with it every day of their lives.  They are a growing number as each horizontal well drilled now, can reach out more than a mile.  Fewer individual well pads, but more well holes per pad are drilled.  Therefore, more people are touched negatively, as they watch their lives change so dramatically for money.  The severe changes to the earth and the view and the sound and the smell, and the degradation of the air is supporting a crescendo of voices yelling “STOP THE FRACKING!”  So YES, if they oil and gas companies increased their drilling, there will be more royalties.  Yes, there will be money to pay for access to “private” land.  But after they have decimated the access to the drill site and the drill site itself; after you listen to the compressors 24 hour a day for days and even weeks at a time; after you have headaches, sinus infections, rashes just to name a few symptoms; after all that did you get enough money and feel good about what you have put your neighbors through?.  So Mr. Scott you need to be more loyal to your constituents.  I can’t believe you won a second term…and I am a registered Republican.
