State Senator Konni Burton Stands with Texas Oil and Gas Industry

State Senator Konni Burton Stands with Texas Oil and Gas Industry

I'm State Senator Konni Burton and I'm proud to stand with the oil and gas industry here in Texas.



Protecting our oil and natural gas industry from government over-regulation is a big priority for me because I understand how much it means to our state. Many folks know that our state has a robust savings account, called the Rainy Day Fund, but many do not know that the oil and gas industry is the primary source of these funds. The industry also contributes to funding for our roads and schools, which impacts the lives of everyday Texans in a very real way. 

Watch my interview with Texans for Natural Gas to learn more about how great of an impact the oil and natural gas industry has on our state.

The future of Texas is a bright one. I’ll fight to keep it that way by holding the line against government policies and regulations that would stifle industries like our oil and gas industry. And thank you for being a supporter of Texans for Natural Gas!
