House Moves to Repeal Trump Methane Rule

On June 25, 2021, the House of Representatives passed a resolution to repeal the Environmental Protection Agency's rollback of new source performance standards for methane emissions from the oil and gas sector. The resolution was passed under the Congressional Review Act, which allows the House and Senate to nullify any recently finalized federal regulation by a simple majority vote in both chambers (subject to presidential approval). The Senate passed the resolution in April 2021.
