H.J.Res. 36: Providing for congressional disapproval under chapter 8 of title 5, United States Code, of the final rule of the Bureau of Land Management relating to “Waste Prevention, Production Subject to Royalties, and Resource Conservation”.

This was a vote to agree to H.J.Res. 36 in the House.

H.J. Res. 36 nullifies a rule that was issued by the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) that requires operators to take various actions to reduce waste of gas lost during oil and gas production activities through venting or flaring of the gas, and through equipment leaks. Bill sponsors considered the rule's cost savings estimates from BLM to have been overstated, the rule itself unnecessary due to decreased levels of emissions and the legal basis for the rule tenuous. As a general matter, the EPA and states are authorized by the Clean Air Act to regulate emissions, whereas BLM is charged with federal land use management. Therefore, it is unclear BLM has the expertise or personnel to efficiently administer this rule.
