We repeat: No gas rate increase UPDATE

Posted By on Mon, Mar 3, 2008 at 5:45 AM

Stephens Media today has its own story on a subject that we mentioned was reported in depth Sunday by the Democrat-Gazette's Seth Blomeley. And it can't be repeated enough: A severance tax increase won't increase the cost of gas to consumers.

On that subject: I stumbled across this letter in the Conway paper in which the local chamber of commerce president details the job boom the shale exploration has brought.

UPDATE: Belatedly posted because of a production glitch is Brummett's column on Gov. Mike Beebe's secret negotiations on a severance tax compromise.
