IT'S A BILLION DOLLAR INDUSTRY IN TEXAS, BUT A TEENY-TINY LIZARD MAY PUT OIL AND GAS DRILLING ON HOLD.
ENVIRONMENTAL ADVOCATES WANT TO ADD THE SAND DUNE LIZARD TO THE ENDANGERED SPECIES LIST.
THE PROBLEM?
IF THE REPTILE MAKES THE LIST, IT COULD SHUT DOWN OIL AND GAS DRILLING IN PARTS OF WEST TEXAS AND EASTERN NEW MEXICO FOR UP TO FIVE YEARS.
PEOPLE FED UP WITH THE SAND DUNE LIZARD ARE MAKING TEE SHIRTS WITH THE SLOGAN "FRAC THE LIZARD."
FRAC REFERS TO HYDROFRACING, A TECHNIQUE THAT USES WATER TO GO DEEP UNDER ROCK TO EXTRACT OIL AND NATURAL GAS.
ALLISON WEBB WORKS IN THE OIL AND GAS INDUSTRY SHE WANTS EVERYONE TO KNOW HOW MUCH THIS LIZARD COULD DISRUPT THE ECONOMY.
WEBB says, "The idea came about as soon as the environmentalists started saying it should become endangered. It's our industry out here. It's everybody's jobs,
so we just basically did it to raise awareness."

U-S SENATOR JOHN CORNYN FILED AN AMENDMENT LAST WEEK THAT WOULD HALT THE PROPOSED LISTING OF THE SAND DUNE LIZARD TO THE
ENDANGERED SPECIES LIST.
