Current Campaign: EPA Methane Rule

The EPA has proposed new standards requiring oil & gas companies to reduce methane pollution and do better monitoring at new and existing drilling operations. 

Why Methane Rules are Important for Arlington and North Texas

These EPA rules are critical for Arlington because of the large number of gas wells here, and because French energy giant Total is aiming to drill and frack more gas wells next to preschools, homes, and medical offices. If done properly, the safeguards could reduce air pollution, create new mechanisms for oversight, and make it more costly to pollute our neighborhoods.
