Western States Petroleum Association President Catherine Reheis-Boyd offered comments on today’s Petroleum Market Advisory Council meeting:
WSPA and its member companies look forward to working with the Governor and the Legislature on practical, fiscally responsible policies that balance today’s economic realities and energy needs with strong, achievable action on climate change.
I stand with tens of thousands of Bay Area energy workers and their families in calling on the Bay Area Quality Management District (BAAQMD) to balance strong emissions rulemaking with today’s economic realities and our shared energy future.
As anticipated, a number of lawsuits have been filed challenging the Kern County oil and gas zoning ordinance amendments and accompanying Environmental Impact Report approved by the Board of Supervisors on November 9, 2015. The Western States Petroleum Association has been named as a party in the lawsuits.
