CHARLESTON — HB 4268, the gas tract co-tenancy bill, heads to the governor. The House on March 5 approved a minor Senate amendment and re-passed it 58-41.

It will allow leasing of a single tract co-owned by seven or more people if 75 percent of the co-tenants agree to lease. Nonconsenting co-tenants will receive the best terms negotiated by the consenting co-tenants.
