The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) wants to suspend an important clean air rule that is crucial to protecting public health. Millions of metric tons of methane are released into the air every year by the oil and gas industry. The Trump administration's refusal to regulate methane pollution leaves our most vulnerable populations at risk.
Strong federal safeguards, like the new source performance standards regulating methane and gas pollution, are essential to protecting the health of our communities and families. These standards provide significant public health benefits by curbing smog and soot-forming emissions, volatile organic compounds, and hazardous air pollutants. The EPA’s methane and gas standards and regulations represent an important step toward protecting the health and safety of our communities.
