Manufacturers Concerned with Yet Another Energy-Limiting Regulation

Manufacturers are disheartened by yet another regulation that will create additional barriers to accessing critical energy resources. The Bureau of Land Management’s newly proposed rule addressing production of oil and natural gas on federal lands comes at a time when methane emissions are already falling and a suite of other regulations—from ozone, to the Clean Power Plan, to many others—threatens to increase energy costs across the board. Our economy and the companies that make things in it depend on energy—all forms of it—to stay in business, compete globally and add jobs. Manufacturers call on the administration to rethink this rule and instead seek policies that promote a true “all-of-the-above” energy strategy.
