Bennet Statement on BLM's Proposed Methane Emissions Rule

Washington, D.C. - Colorado U.S. Senator Michael Bennet issued the following statement on the Bureau of Land Management's (BLM) proposed rules for the disposal of methane emissions:

"Reducing methane emissions is important to protect our environment and Colorado is already leading the way. State and local officials, energy producers, and environmental groups in our state worked together to create commonsense, cost-effective regulations to tackle this issue. We're glad that the BLM is following Colorado's lead and appears to be using similar strategies. We look forward to taking a closer look to ensure that BLM's proposed rule works for our communities and energy producers."
