"An industry bill"

West Virginia Sen. Charles H. Clements, R-Wetzel, expressed concern with a bill subsequently passed by the Legislature designed to change the methodology by which oil and gas property taxes are valued, calling it “an industry bill.”

So much was being taken from under his constituents’ feet that he had to take the floor.
