Washington County’s own State Sen. Lois W. Kolkhorst (R-Brenham) is not happy about Bureau of Land Management plans to auction off oil and gas leases underneath Somerville Lake.

According to a letter obtained Tuesday by The Banner-Press, Kolkhorst has filed an official letter to BLM one day before the deadline of July 1 to protest six tracts of oil and gas leases up for auction along the southern edge of Somerville Lake.
