Landowners Rally Planned for Friday

     TOWANDA (WENY) -- Bradford County commissioners will host a rally on February 14 morning voicing support for a landowners rights to royalties.

     The rally is to show support for House Bill 1684, a that bill seeks protection for landowners with royalty agreements.  Over the last few months, county commissioners say some natural gas companies have tried to reduce royalties below the required minimum.

     Commissioners say that's unfair to landowners and costs the county and state millions of dollars.

     The rally is slated to start Friday, February 14 at 11 AM on the front steps of the county courthouse in Towanda.
