Statement from WSPA President Catherine Reheis-Boyd On The Signing Of SB 4

With the signing of Senate Bill 4, California has the toughest regulations of hydraulic fracturing and other energy production technologies in the country.

While SB 4’s requirements went significantly farther than the petroleum industry felt was necessary, we have joined in the responsible development of a regulatory platform which will ensure strong environmental protections and safe, efficient energy production.

There remains a great deal of work to clarify and implement the requirements of SB 4. WSPA and our members stand ready to work with the Administration, Department of Conservation and other stakeholders to ensure SB 4 is implemented effectively and fairly.
