On Wednesday, we received news that President Trump’s Administration took another step to put the interests of Big Oil before the health and safety of the American people. The Bureau of Land Management (BLM) announced it will suspend portions of a methane standard which is intended to limit the amount of valuable natural gas that oil and gas companies can leak, vent, or flare on millions of acres of federal and tribal lands.
Several provisions of the standard that were scheduled to take effect on Jan. 17, 2018, have been pushed back indefinitely. This far-reaching action was taken without the opportunity for public comment.
70% of voter support the methane standards. Send a social media message urging the BLM and the EPA to put the interests of the public before the desires of Big Oil and Gas. Tell them to keep the methane standards.
