Methane

Public Land Solutions has engaged in support of the Bureau of Land Management’s proposed Methane Waste Rule, which seeks to cut methane emissions by 40 – 45 percent. The final rule was released in the Fall of 2016. The strategy for this project includes deepening support among grasstops leaders and opinion leaders, build a narrative that the BLM natural gas waste rule is talked about as an economic benefit to Utah, identify leaders who will be a foil and oppose Gov. Herbert’s administration effort against the rule, and provide space for Utah Department of Environmental Quality to be neutral or helpful behind the scenes. See the below Fact Sheet and this blog for more information.

In March 2017, Public Land Solutions released a letter urging the United States Senate to not support the proposed Congressional Review Act vote on the Methane Rule. If passed, the CRA will disband this essential rule and there will be no regulation curbing natural gas waste on America’s public lands. View the letter here: Outdoor Business Methane Rule Letter

PLS Co-founder Ashley Korenblat also provided testimony to the Senate on the rule. You can view her testimony here Ashley Korenblat Methane Waste CRA Testimony
