Rep. Mann, Sen. Marshall fight EPA regulatory expansion
Rep. Tracey Mann

U.S. Representatives Tracey Mann (KS-01), Stephanie Bice (OK-05), and Jodey Arrington (TX-19), alongside U.S. Senators Roger Marshall, M.D. (KS) and Ted Cruz (TX), led their colleagues in sending a bicameral letter to U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Administrator Michael Regan. The letter urges EPA Administrator Regan to withdraw a proposed rule seeking to further regulate the oil and gas industry. The letter states in part,

“Recently, energy costs have significantly risen, and all across the country, Americans are paying the price. “Burdening the oil and natural gas industry at this time would be a colossal mistake that would further exacerbate this trend. Higher energy costs harm all Americans. We urge you to withdraw this proposed rule pending further environmental and economic study. Barring that, we call for a further extension of the comment period, of not less than 60 days, to give the public, regulated community, and other stakeholders the time necessary to analyze the proposal and fully participate in the rule-making process. As the country continues to recover from the COVID-19 pandemic we need to be working to strengthen American energy production, not burdening the industry with unnecessary and costly regulation.”

The leading members are joined by 11 members of the U.S. House of Representatives and 4 members of the U.S. Senate.
