Senate Mulls ‘Kill Switch’ for Obama Methane Rule
The U.S. Senate is expected to vote soon on whether to use the Congressional Review Act to kill an Obama administration climate regulation that cuts methane emissions from oil and gas wells on federal land.

Federal agencies cannot propose similar regulations on their own.
