  • Valor7: What I tried to say is that the actual money would not be there that quick. But a loan against that would work if they are willing to do that.

  • Valor7: Actually no it is not, a dependable Revenue stream will not come on line until the 4th quarter of 2017 so 2018 budget will be up in the air, not quite sure what they will have. By 2019 budget all will be well.

  • Valor7: I could have worded that better, we talked details, options, the pros and cons of each, in  order to arrive at the best ballot language to present to the voters. Hope that makes this clearer.

  • Valor7: sorry about the typos still working with just one arm in action
    April 13, 2016, 01:10:42 PM
  • Valor7: Yes and no. We talked details and options until we were blue in the face but I never heardbring it over, it was always the time was not right for the issue to pass. Glad to see the time in now right and I for one shall vote yes on the ballot. I would urge all others to do the sameour county is busting at the seams crimewise and no matter how many bad guys we send off there always seems to someone to replace them. The Sheriff's Office needs the help.

[color=black size]Domenici, Senate Republicans Unveil Plan to Increase Domestic Production ( S.2958 ) [/color]
tradingmarkets.com ^ | May 02, 2008 | staff WASHINGTON - U.S. Senator Pete Domenici, ranking member of the Senate Energy and Natural Resources Committee, today introduced legislation intended to dramatically increase domestic production of oil and natural gas in order to lower prices and make America less dependent on foreign sources of oil. The American Energy Production Act of 2008 (S.2958) was introduced today by Domenici and nineteen co-sponsors from across the country. By expanding production offshore and in Alaska, the legislation will produce up to 24 billion barrels of oil-enough to keep America running for five years with no foreign imports. In addition, billions more barrels of fuel would be made available through development of oil shale and coal to liquids technology. "For years now, I have been trying to develop more domestic production of oil and gas, and for years, with one exception in the Gulf of Mexico, I have been blocked for political reasons. Consumers are now paying the price for those years of obstruction," Domenici said. "The bill I'm introducing today will produce up to 24 billion barrels of oil through common sense measures to open up areas offshore and in Alaska for exploration. It will also allow us to develop billions more barrels of fuel through oil shale and coal to liquids technology. This measure will go a long way toward helping us break the cycle of dependence on foreign sources of oil," he continued. Domenici pointed out that had President Clinton not vetoed exploration in the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge (ANWR) in 1995, when oil was $19 a barrel, America would currently be receiving over 1 million barrels a day from Alaska. The amount of oil in ANWR is enough to supply New Mexico for 222 years. The American Energy Production Act will also lift the one-year moratorium on developing oil shale in Colorado, Wyoming and Utah. Over 2 trillion barrels of oil shale currently exist in those states-three times as much oil as Saudi Arabia has in reserve. The bill will allow petitions for leasing activities in the Atlantic and Pacific regions of the Outer Continental Shelf in order to tap into the 14 billion barrels of recoverable oil in those areas. Exploration will occur off the shore of a state if that state's Governor petitions to have the moratorium on exploration lifted. "Congress has spent billions to research and develop clean sources of energy. I've been a leader in those efforts and I will continue to be. However, we must face the fact that no matter what we do, America will still need oil, and without action, an increasingly large portion of that oil will come from unstable regions. With gas prices soaring higher and higher, we must produce more at home, and this bill allows us to that in an environmentally responsible manner," Domenici said. Among the original co-sponsors of the bill are: Senators Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.), Wayne Allard (R-Col.), John Barrasso (R-Wyo.), Robert Bennett (R-Utah), Kit Bond (R-Mo.), Jim Bunning (R-Ky.), Saxby Chambliss (R-Ga.), Thad Cochran (R-Miss.), John Cornyn (R-Texas), Mike Enzi (R-Wyo.), Kay Bailey Hutchison (R-Texas), Jim Inhofe (R-Okla.), Johnny Isakson (R-Ga.), Lisa Murkowski (R-Alaska), Jeff Sessions (R-Ala.), Ted Stevens (R-Alaska), John Thune (R-SD), George Voinovich (R-Ohio), and Roger Wicker (R-Miss.).
