5/8: Methane Gas Rule

The US House of Representatives voted earlier to pass a resolution to undo a measure that would cut air pollution, prevent the waste of taxpayer dollars, and curb climate change-causing problems (the methane waste prevention rule designed to limit venting, flaring, and leaking of methane from natural gas.) This rule is finally due to be voted on this week in the Senate.
