IPAA Call to Action: BLM Venting and Flaring Under Congressional Review

IPAA would like to encourage your participation on a time-sensitive matter that needs your urgent attention. The Obama Administration finalized a number of rules during the waning months in office.

Some of these regulations, that are harmful to our industry, were pushed out due to political ideology rather than a carefully measured and studied need for change.

One such regulation that the Senate is expected to take a vote on next week is the Bureau of Land Management’s (BLM) Methane and Waste Prevention Rule, also known as the Venting and Flaring Rule.

Through a tool known as the Congressional Review Act (CRA), the U.S. Senate is working through a list of rules that were released in the eleventh-hour of the Obama Administration and will call for a vote to repeal some of these harmful regulations.

IPAA has been active in helping shape the BLM Venting and Flaring rule by participating at every stage in the rule-development process. Unfortunately, the final rule was published and did not take into consideration IPAA’s concerns and that of our member companies.

Therefore, we strongly encourage you to get involved and contact your Senator and urge them to VOTE IN FAVOR of H.J. Res. 36. For your convenience, a form letter can be found HERE. Your voice matters and, at times like these, it needs to be heard.

Please help by lending your support.
