– U.S. Senator Shelley Moore Capito (R-W.Va.), Ranking Member of the Senate Environment and Public Works (EPW) Committee, today spoke on the Senate floor against Senate Joint Resolution 14, a resolution of disapproval of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA)’s methane policy rule.

“We should not demonize an industry that is part of the lifeblood of our economy. We should celebrate the emissions reduction accomplishments and look for ways to further incentivize those. Let’s focus on solutions that will address our climate challenges without destroying the economic engines of growth,” Ranking Member Capito said. “So let’s get come up with solutions that actually help protect our planet and don’t overregulate industry for political points. Solutions like improving the environmental review and permitting processes so we can complete these pipeline projects more efficiently and cleaner.”
