1) Has anyone in your council been approached recently about leasing their land for oil or natural gas exploration? What was their experience working with the drilling company?

2) Do you feel you have enough information about the issue if you were approached with a lease agreement? What additional information do you need?

3) Do you believe that increased oil and natural gas exploration could help rural communities? Are there any potential drawbacks?

4) What additional policy suggestions do you have for OFBF to help landowners navigate issues surrounding oil and natural gas lease agreements?
