The House voted on HR 2728 and approved the legislation by a vote of 235 to 187. The legislation would prevent the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) from enforcing any federal rules or guidance relating to hydraulic fracturing in states that already have regulations or guidance related to hydraulic fracturing. BLM is currently reviewing more than 1 million public comments it received on its proposed rule, and is not expected to release a final rule until September 2014. The White House announced that it will veto the bill as it hinders the government’s ability to safely manage hydraulic fracturing activities on more than 700 million acres of federal land.
