Public Lands Watchdog Group: Methane Waste Bill Roll-Back Wastes Gas, Money

Sep 21, 2018


The US Department of Interior announced this week the roll-back of the 2016 Methane Waste Prevention Rule that had tightened oil and gas regulations on Bureau of Land Management lands. KDNK’s Amy Hadden Marsh spoke with Jayson O’Neill, deputy director of the Western Values Project, a Montana-based public lands watchdog group, about the costs of the rollback.
