There is not much to report from the State House since Governor Riley hasn’t called a special session so far. At least two sessions were expected this summer with the first one dealing with industrial development needs. However, losing the Volkswagen plant to Tennessee made that one unnecessary. The other session will likely be isolated to revisiting the laws relating to natural gas royalties. Most legislators I have talked with tell me that a session dealing with that issue will be a real test for the oil industry lobbyists. Those lobbyists will definitely have their work cut out on this issue. It will be interesting to see who will be the winner if the session is called – the lobbyists, or Governor Riley and the people of Alabama. If I were a betting man I wouldn’t put my money on the lobbyists this time.
