Governors to testify about methane pollution

Select Committee on Climate Crisis |


The governors of New Mexico and Wyoming will go before a House committee on Tuesday to testify about methane pollution from oil and gas production.

The House Select Committee on the Climate Crisis will hear from New Mexico Gov. Michelle Lujan Grisham and from Wyoming Gov. Mark Gordon.

The two will share perspectives on the efforts in their states to cut methane emissions. The hearing will also focus on how states have implemented funding from the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law, which invested billions of dollars to plug abandoned oil and gas wells across America.

The hybrid hearing will be titled “State Perspective on Cutting Methane Pollution” and begin at 1 p.m. Eastern Time.

Last week, the U.S. House Science Committee held a similar hearing.
