ACCF Joins Coalition Urging Senate Action to Repeal BLM Methane Rule

The American Council for Capital Formation (ACCF) today joined a coalition of 10 other pro-economic growth organizations in calling on the U.S. Senate to use the Congressional Review Act to repeal the Bureau of Land Management’s (BLM) methane regulation. The Senate’s ability to use the CRA to nullify the methane rule expires on May 11. BLM’s methane and waste prevention rule requires oil and natural gas producers on federal lands to reduce methane emissions by up to 45 percent by 2025. The rule is just one of dozens of costly regulations pushed through in the final days of the Obama administration. The rule is expected to cost producers up to $297 million per year to comply, while BLM estimates it would reduce global greenhouse gas emissions by only 0.0092 percent.
