CRAMER: Statement on BLM Proposal to Rescind Hydraulic Fracturing Rule
WASHINGTON D.C. – Congressman Kevin Cramer issued the following statement today after the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) announced in the Federal Register a proposal to rescind the 2015 final rule on hydraulic fracturing:
"The rescinding of BLM's hydraulic fracturing rule marks another win for regulatory relief in North Dakota. This duplicative rule of state regulatory programs would have added more cost and delay to our energy producers with no safety or environmental benefits to show for it. Withdrawing the hydraulic fracturing rule continues the drumbeat of the Trump Administration improving how the federal government works with states and industry to foster jobs and investment without making sacrifices."
