Bingman Mining Bill Receives Governor’s
Senator Brian Bingman’s mining bill received the Governor’s
approval on Friday signing it into law.
Senate Bill 706 prevents the needless waste of municipalities’
time and resources and relieves the burden put on their governments
in the reconsideration of mining permits. Bingman applauded the
effort to make for a more efficient government.
Bingman, R-Sapulpa, authored Senate Bill 706 that allows municipalities
to limit consideration of certain mining requests. This legislation
guarantees that city resources are not wasted by reviewing the same
denied application over and over again.
“Receiving the Governor’s signature on this piece of
legislation brings about much needed change for cities and towns
throughout our state,” said Bingman. “By working with
Speaker Benge and the House author of SB 706, Representative Dennis
Adkins, we have now paved the way for more efficient government
in our municipalities and I look forward to the benefits it will
bring to our state.”
Municipalities are no longer required to reconsider mining permits
unless there is a material change in the application.
