Senior DOE Staff To TX Oil Producers - He's "All Ears" For Suggestions On Which Regulations To Cut

The Department of Energy will look at how it might carry out President Trump's executive order to suspend regulations that the White House says are stifling jobs amid the coronavirus pandemic, a top agency official told a Texas oil and gas group yesterday.

Speaking to the Texas Alliance of Energy Producers via Zoom, Steven Winberg, the assistant secretary for fossil energy, said DOE is "all ears if your members have ideas."

Trump on Tuesday signed an order that directs agency chiefs throughout federal government to "address this economic emergency by rescinding, modifying, waiving, or providing exemptions from regulations and other requirements that may inhibit economic recovery" (E&E News PM, May 20). Winberg said DOE "will be looking at" the executive order, noting that it is "something that's been ongoing in this department, to look at pulling back regulations."

He said the fossil energy division has already been reviewing liquefied natural gas imports and exports and that the department had recently moved to extend the authorization to export natural gas and liquefied natural gas to 2050 in a bid "to pull back regulations to make U.S. LNG exports more competitive."

1. Biden...

Instead of tackling Trump's criminal executive orders individually, he needs on his first day in office just to have one gigantic executive order that reverses every one of Trump's. That will speed things up and save a lot of time and grief.

It should just be called "The Shitstain Remover" or something like that.
