Current law allows the director of the oil and gas conservation
commission to delay the final determination regarding an oil and gas
permit application pursuant to specified objective criteria. The bill repeals
this authority and specifies that if a local government that has so-called
House Bill 1041 authority approves an oil and gas application, the
