Senate Energy and Natural Resources Chairman Ron Wyden (D-OR) announced on July 25 that he and Ranking Member Lisa Murkowski (R-AK) have begun looking at ways to modify federal natural gas laws. He said they are developing legislation that targets four main areas: infrastructure development and methane leaks, transportation fuels, LNG exports, and the regulatory division between states and the federal government. The two lawmakers will be reaching out to lawmakers on both sides of the aisle over the August recess.
