Bishop Statement on BLM's Methane Rule Delay


WASHINGTON, D.C., December 8, 2017 -

Today, Chairman Rob Bishop (R-UT) issued the following statement in reaction to the Bureau of Land Management’s (BLM) methane rule delay:

“The previous rule was outside the limits of BLM’s authority. It was one of the Obama administration’s half-baked schemes to force responsible energy development off federal lands. Reining in bad policies to expand American energy strength, grow jobs and increase revenues is more welcome news from Trump administration.”
