Yes, maybe it IS time to review this regulation. And maybe a few others.

The price we pay for energy independence.

And it’s legal for oil and gas drilling rigs to be close to a road or interstate, Frink said. “They can’t be closer to highways than the height of their drilling rig,” he said. However, state Department of Transportation and Development Secretary Johnny Bradberry said the governor has asked for a review of the rule that dictates how far from a road a well can be located. “That policy is being reviewed as we speak,” he said.

Note the use of the passive voice. Someone-- we aren't given to know who-- is reviewing the polity. Whew! That's a relief.

Update: More of the same.

One problem in the history of wells near highways in LA, and you think more than a review of the policy is needed.

Traffic issues over a holiday weekend and LSU's last home game definitely should be the state's number one priority. Screw the oil industry and its workers. Give teachers a raise instead.
