  • In Montana, no.
  • At the federal level, no. But the Environmental Protection Agency is conducting an Information Collection Request that could lead to standards.

Call your Senators!

Tell them that:

  • We must protect our methane pollution standards and cut toxic air pollution from the 1.2 million existing oil and gas facilities around the United States.
