Often what sounds good is often anything but easy. Such is the case of Ryan Taylor’s recent column. His folksy, ah-shucks language may sound appealing and his solutions easy, but the realities of regulating our state’s two largest industries are seldom so simple. Take for example, Taylor’s recent attempt to make political hay with the very unfortunate brine spill at Mandaree. Taylor used this mishap to promote his “landowner bill of rights” and its mandate that pipelines use flow meters and pressure cutoff switches. In his hurry to rush to judgment, Taylor forgets to check his facts.
