Senate Threatens Climate With Proposal to Revoke Methane Pollution Rules

Center for Biological Diversity

WASHINGTON - A Senate effort to repeal methane pollution standards for oil and gas operations on America’s public lands will cost taxpayers millions, accelerate climate change and increase asthma and other public-health problems. Senators will likely vote later this week on a Congressional Review Act measure that would repeal common-sense protections against these outcomes finalized last year by the Bureau of Land Management.
