Benefits of Membership

Legislative & Regulatory Involvement

The PBPA has staff and consultants in the capitals of Texas, New Mexico, and the United States to ensure strong relationships with elected officials and regulatory agencies. During each legislative session, the PBPA works diligently to track hundreds of bills in Texas, New Mexico, and Washington, D.C. that could impact the oil and gas industry.
