Interior Department Updates Air Quality Standards

Offshore Air Standards will be more cost-effective according to Secretary Bernhardt.

The Department of the Interior announced on Friday of last week, that it would be implementing new standards for air quality for the Bureau of Ocean Energy Management’s offshore oil production facilities. The air quality standards have been as they are for the past 40 years. The new rules will implement new technical and compliance-related updates that will “bring the regulations into this century” according to an Interior Department press release. 

Secretary of the Interior David Bernhardt explained the reasoning for the new rules saying in a statement, “Under the President’s leadership, the Department has taken numerous, commonsense actions resulting in billions of dollars in deregulatory savings, and we will continue to take actions to better serve the American people. The final rule released today incorporates current standards, creates consistency with the statutory authorities, and is one more step in the right direction.”

As the Lord Leads, Pray with Us…

  • That God would use the Interior Department to preserve the air quality of the U.S.
  • For Secretary Bernhardt to be used by God to lead the Interior Department effectively. 
  • That the Trump Administration would be led by the Lord to be good stewards of His creation.
