Jack Gerard Letter to U.S. Senate on CRA Resolution to Revoke Bureau of Land Management's Methane Rule
Tuesday, May 9, 2017
The American Petroleum Institute (API) strongly supports H.J. Res. 36, the Congressional Review Act (CRA) disapproval resolution of the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) “Methane and Waste Prevention” rule. Please find below and attached a letter of support from API President and CEO Jack Gerard for H.J. Res. 36, which was approved by the House of Representatives in February. Methane emissions from natural gas and oil production are declining even as production soars, and we share Interior Secretary Zinke’s commitment to reducing waste and ensuring the fair return for the taxpayer, which will continue to be within the BLM’s authority should the CRA disapproval resolution be approved by the Senate. We ask the Senate to approve this resolution.
