Much has been said about the elements of a compromise to address the forthcoming expiration of the statutory debt ceiling and the challenges of reducing the federal deficit. Among the issues that have been raised are targeted tax increases on specific industries. President Obama targeted the oil and natural gas exploration and production industry in many of his recent statements. As the most active advocate for America’s independent producers, the Independent Petroleum Association of America (IPAA) requests that these proposals to target a specific industry for tax increases be rejected.

These materials were submitted to the Environmental Protection Agency public meeting on stormwater management during oil and gas construction activities. They were submitted by IPAA on its behalf and for a number of national, regional, and state associations. They discuss the IPAA position on EPA’s approach to regulating stormwater during oil and gas construction activities, the current management practices, and the consequences of applying EPA’s Construction General Permit.

IPAA is the industry's strongest presence in the nation's capital and these are important times. The entire oil and gas industry remains under fire from anti-development groups; but with these challenges arise unique opportunities that IPAA is seizing for our members.
