Michelle Negley turned in her resignation as a member of the Arizona Oil & Gas Conservation Commission because she's moving out of state for due to a job change. Gov. Brewer will appoint her replacement to the unpaid position.
The Commission is an independent body that regulates oil, gas, geothermal, CO2, and He drilling in the state as well as underground storage of propane. The Commission has no staff, so AZGS provides all of its technical and administrative support.
