What They Are Saying About EPA’s New Methane Proposal

   < < Go Back
from EPA,

EPA proposed updates to the prior administration’s national standards for the oil and natural gas industry. The proposal would remove duplicative regulations and save the industry millions of dollars in compliance costs each year – while maintaining health and environmental regulations on oil and gas sources that the agency considers appropriate. Congressional leaders and stakeholders had the following to say:

U.S. Senator John Barrasso (WY), Senate Environment and Public Works Committee Chairman: “The Trump Administration is working to make sure regulations are justified. The state of Wyoming already regulates methane emissions from oil and gas production. There’s no need for Washington to pile on. I will work with Wyoming to evaluate the Environmental Protection Agency’s new proposal. We need commonsense rules that protect our air without hurting our economy.”
