The U.S. Bureau of Land Management’s methane and natural gas rule is a commonsense policy that requires the oil and gas industry to reduce venting, flaring, and leaks at industry operations on public and tribal lands by deploying methane mitigation technology. Repealing this rule would harm public health and the climate and reduce revenue to the federal government and Western states.
The pro-environment vote is NO.
The bill FAILED in the Senate with a 49-51 vote on May 10, 2017
