On August 28, EPA announced an attempt to roll back key provisions of the 2016 New Source Performance Standards, which provide critical health and safety protections to prevent harm to public health from methane emissions and prevent potential methane leaks. PSR opposes any attempt to roll back the NSPS.

PSR opposes the Trump Administration’s reckless proposal to allow liquefied natural gas (LNG) to be hauled by train. If such a train were to derail, the result could be a “gas bomb”—a fire so intense that emergency responders could not put it out.
