EPA’s Proposed Air Rules Removing Expensive, Regulatory Duplication A ‘Smart Move’

WASHINGTON DC (August 29, 2019) – Today, Thomas Pyle, President of the American Energy Alliance, issued the following statement in support of the Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) proposed update to air regulations for the domestic oil and gas industry:

“This proposal is a smart move and directly in line with President Trump’s approach to America’s continued energy dominance. The EPA has already shown that on top of incredible economic growth, led by the domestic energy industry, the U.S. leads the world in clean air. The connection between a vibrant economy and a healthy environment are all too evident. Unfortunately, due to the doom-and-gloom rhetoric from the green left, most American’s don’t understand or realize that the environment is continually getting better.”

“Today’s proposed change focuses on removing costly and duplicative barriers while promoting market-focused solutions. Incentives to reduce emissions already exist for this industry without the heavy hand of the government and today’s announcement is a breath of fresh air from the previous administration that made every effort possible to regulate the oil and gas industry out of business.”

As noted by the EPA in their announcement, the proposal would remove regulatory duplication and save the industry millions of dollars in compliance costs each year – while maintaining health and environmental regulations on oil and gas sources that the agency considers appropriate. EPA’s regulatory impact analysis estimates that the proposed amendments would reduce regulatory red tape to the tune of $17-$19 million a year through 2025.
