As the president of the Ark. Chapter of NARO, please allow me to invite your comments on the forum concerning issues we need to address for this region. We are happy to relay any concerns you have to national if need be, and anyone who would like to monitor the legislative sessions coming up, please let me know. It is pretty distant for me to go there from the NW corner of the state but I would be happy to have someone who could check up on what's going on that affects mineral owners.
We know we have a fight on our hands to keep Sheffield Nelson from getting an increase in the severance tax passed but that increase is passed on to the consumer except for that part that applies to you, the royalty owner. You end up with that deducted from YOUR share. With many of the "Post Production Expenses" already exceeding 20% of your check, this is significant.
