Rebuttal to Lance Bruun kens5.com comments

Lance Bruun Commission Chairman is mistaken about the 1876 Texas Constitution, in his latest comments to kens5 news team because the Constitution actually supports the owners (“the state released to the owner of the soil all mines and mineral substances  therein”) This constitutional provision had retrospective effect; the landowner was given complete ownership of the minerals in all lands that passed from the sovereign before the effective date of the Constitution of 1876. , and what many people mistake, including Bruun  is the only the text about mineral rights that is about taxation, not surrender of land. The Texas Supreme Court in 1928, in Greene v. Robinson. Rather than holding the Relinquishment Act unconstitutional, the Court “construed” the Act in a way that would pass constitutional muster. It held that the Act did not relinquish the oil and gas to the landowners; instead, it made the landowners the agent of the State for the leasing of oil and gas rights, and granted to the landowner the right to one-half of all bonuses, royalties and other benefits accruing from those leases.   http://www.kens5.com/story/news/investigations/i-team/2014/11/25/oil-money-heirs-unclaimed/70094884/   The problem with people like Lance, is that it really makes for misunderstandings not only to the heirs and descendants but also the law […]
