Sep 27, 2017 IPAA and AXPC Joint Comments to Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke on the Implementation of Executive Order 13777, Enforcing the Regulatory Reform Agenda, at the Bureau of Land Management
Dear Secretary Zinke: The Independent Petroleum Association of America (IPAA) and the American Exploration and Production Council (AXPC) appreciate the opportunity to submit comments regarding ways the Department of the Interior can improve management of federal lands and reform the regulatory process utilized by the agency. The comments contained in this document specifically address regulatory reform at the Bureau of Land Management (BLM). We welcome the Trump Administration’s efforts to make American energy dominance a cornerstone of Administration policy. However, the current regulatory process at the BLM hampers that important goal.
