Wayne Christian Gives a Statement


Commissioner Wayne Christian today released the following statement regarding Environmental Protection Agency's (EPA) withdrawal of its information request for the oil and gas industry to provide information on equipment and emissions at existing oil and gas operations:
"After the November election, in an attempt to circumvent the will of the American people, the EPA and the Obama Administration put in place an unlawful methane data collection mandate that would have cost the oil and gas industry millions of dollars.  I applaud EPA Administrator Scott Pruitt for eliminating this costly mandate on our nation's energy producers that would have hurt jobs and prevented growth in our economy. It is time our national energy policy is based on sound science and not baseless speculation."
