New House bills would regulate hydraulic fracturing under the Clean Water Act and Clean Air Act. The Bringing Reductions to Energy’s Airborne Toxic Health Effect Act (the “BREATHE Act”) would require that oil and gas operations be “aggregated” for major source air permitting purposes and add hydrogen sulfide to the Clean Air Act’s list of hazardous air pollutants. A second bill, the Focused Reduction of Effluence and Stormwater runoff through Hydraulic Environmental Regulation Act (“FRESHER Act”) would eliminate certain Clean Water Act stormwater permit exemptions. The bills’ sponsors, Jared Polis (D. Colo.) and Matt Cartwright (D. Pa.), have asserted the bills would close “loopholes” in existing law. The bills have the support of major environmental groups.
