Description

Natural gas companies; right of entry upon property. Repeals the measure enacted in 2004 that allows interstate natural gas companies to enter upon property to make examinations, tests, hand auger borings, appraisals, and surveys without the written consent of the owner if the companies seek the landowner's permission to inspect and give notice of intent to enter. The repealed provision has granted to interstate natural gas companies the same limited right of entry for survey and study purposes that is granted to intrastate natural gas companies.
