FreedomWorks Praises EPA for Addressing Oil and Gas Regulatory Compliance Concerns

FreedomWorks Foundation’s Director of Policy Patrick Hedger made the following comment, following EPA’s announcement the agency will address compliance concerns:

“America’s energy producers have plenty of incentives to improve the efficiency and safety of their operations. It means more money in their pocket. This is in addition to an endless array of other state and federal regulations. Constantly adding red-tape at the margins is the real inefficiency. We support Administrator Pruitt’s commitment to regulatory effectiveness and certainty rather than regulation for the sake of pushing pencils.”
