Bishop Statement on Zinke's Secretarial Order on Onshore Oil and Gas Permitting


WASHINGTON, D.C., July 6, 2017 -

Today, Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke signed Secretarial Order 3354 to identify solutions to streamline the permitting process for mineral leases on federal lands. Chairman Rob Bishop (R-UT) issued the following statement:

Secretary Zinke’s commitment to foster regulatory certainty and unleash our energy potential is a welcome shift in priorities at Interior. We will be working in close coordination with the Secretary to provide the Department with the statutory tools to ensure that responsible energy development on federal lands is no longer held hostage to intransigent bureaucracy and ludicrous permitting delays.
