Title: ●Revision or Rescission of the 2016 Waste Prevention, Production Subject to Royalties, and Resource Conservation Rule 

This Proposed Rule would revise or rescind the Bureau of Land Management's 2016 Final Rule, Waste Prevention, Production Subject to Royalties, and Resource Conservation.  Consistent with the President's March 28, 2017, Executive Order on Promoting Energy Independence and Economic Growth, the Department of the Interior has been reviewing existing regulations to determine whether revisions or rescissions are appropriate to promote the development or use of domestically produced energy resources.  As part of this process, the Department is reviewing the 2016 Final Rule and expects to propose a rule to determine whether revision or rescission of the 2016 Final Rule is appropriate or necessary due to its regulatory burden on American energy production and State and local jobs.
