(Before It's News)

U.S. Congressman Mac Thornberry (R-Clarendon) released the following statement to commend Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Administrator Scott Pruitt for withdrawing the Information Collection Request (ICR) for the oil and natural gas industry to provide information to develop regulations for methane emissions from existing sources:
 
“EPA Administrator Pruitt’s decision to withdraw the methane emissions ICR for the oil and natural gas industry is a welcome move away from the previous Administration’s agenda to expand their authority and control over many parts of our society. We have a responsibility to be good stewards of our environment, but that does not mean that the federal government should be burdening our nation’s energy producers with needless and costly regulations like this one.
 
“There is no question that these burdensome regulations like the ICR drive up costs for businesses and consumers alike. By the EPA’s own estimate, the ICR would have cost producers $42 million to comply during a time when the industry is already dealing with financial hardships.”
