Send a message to the U.S. EPA. EPA Administrator Scott Pruitt is attempting to delay the methane rule, which would require oil and gas companies to cap methane leaks. This rule would help to protect the 3.1 million Ohioans living within a mile of oil and gas operations and the more than 30,000 Ohio children per year who suffer from asthma attacks due to smog.
