LPRC's ORC Working Group is working on their 2013 research agenda  More details hopefully will be shared later as this is the hot button for the industry. It's a great effort on LPRC's part and we, at the Daily hope the agenda helps detail some of the points the industry needs to identify, realize, communicate, and helps to establish a true business model response, as some of the talking points are vague, all over the boards, and actually hurt the efforts on a national level. Their leadership here could help the industry identify exactly what needs to be done and what that looks like, as it has been, up to this point, a highly debatable issue that lacks any true empirical research and any industry wide acceptable model. We at the Daily absolutely support the LPRC's work here and offer the Daily's resources in an attempt to add value to the LPRC, the LP industry itself, and in our efforts to combat this growing problem.
