It also requires state agencies to create property inventories that could yield potential drilling sites.<br /><br /> The House has passed the bill, but would have to agree to the Senate&#39;s changes before it could go to the governor&#39;s desk.<br /> Thu, 16 Jun 2011 11:13:12 +0000 Associated Press 2903 at http://wyso.org
