Tell the Biden Administration: Fix Our Outdated Oil & Gas Leasing Rules!
September 6, 2023 @ 5:00 pm - 6:30 pm
Join us on September 6th at 8pm EST/5pm PST to learn more about the latest Bureau of Land Management comment period for their proposed rule to reform the federal oil and gas leasing program, and learn how to submit the most effective personal public comment.
For decades, the BLM has sold off federal public lands to oil and gas companies for pennies on the dollar and with even less oversight. This broken system has locked up vast amounts of land from any use other than extraction and left thousands of dangerous and polluting abandoned wells with communities footing the bill to clean them up.
This updated rule would hold oil and gas companies accountable for the damage they cause, end subsidies for oil and gas producers, and add competition to the leasing process. These proposed rules could re-balance how we manage public lands. That means seeing more protections for wildlife, cultural sites, and outdoor recreation.
On Wednesday’s call, we’ll go over this policy in more depth, then spend time learning how to write the most effective public comment and submit them to the BLM. Can’t make it this time? Sign up to receive the recording and toolkit to submit your own comment because we know these make a huge difference!
