Maloney Continues to Tackle Royalties IssueTweet
December 6, 2006
Three Cheers to Representative Carolyn Maloney (D-New York) for her legislation introduced today which would commission a technical study of how the government collects gas drilling payments. An industry whistleblower with a major pending False Claims Act lawsuit, Jack Grynberg, brought many concerns to light about how oil companies may be cheating the taxpayer and Indians. Maloney�s bill would put experts on the case to figure out whether those concerns are still a problem on federal and Native American leases. Maloney�s investigations and oversight in the late 1990�s helped bring oil royalty underpayments to light.
