API Asks Trump to Cut Gov’t Red Tape During COVID-19 Crisis

The American Petroleum Institute (API) wrote a letter to both President Trump and the federal Environmental Protection Agency last Friday asking for “non-essential compliance obligations” to be temporarily waived. Such obligations include “record-keeping, training and other non-safety requirements.” The oil and gas industry wants to be able to better and more quickly distribute fuel during the COVID-19 coronavirus crisis–using fewer people to do so. Government red tape is enormous. API is simply asking the government to cut some of that red tape on a temporary (not permanent) basis to get the job done during this crisis.
