Shreveport Postpones Vote on Regulations

The Shreveport City Council defered action on city regulations to address impacts of Haynesville Shale drilling.  The reason for the delay was to explore the idea of incorporating the new rules as "stipulations in well contracts" rather than passing an ordinance. 

I'm not quite sure how that would work since the council would probably have to pass an ordinance to put the language in all new contracts.  What's the difference?
