Spring is in full swing, and we’re already knee deep in the regulatory onslaught.So far this year, Western Energy Alliance has engaged in rulemaking on a new ozone standard, another round of Quad O air regulations, and greenhouse gas reporting, and now the Resource Management Plan amendments (RMPA) are hitting.We’ve filed a lawsuit along with Independent Petroleum Association of America (IPAA) on the Bureau of Land Management’s (BLM) fracking rule, challenged the science on sage grouse, and formally objected to Forest Plans in the White River National Forest and Pawnee National Grasslands.
