Dear Ms. Segal,
Thank you for contacting me with your concerns for H.J.Res. 46, a joint resolution disapproving a 2016 National Park Service rule addressing non-federal oil and gas rights within National Park Service units outside of Alaska. I appreciate hearing your thoughts on this important issue.
As you may know, H.J.Res 46 was introduced by Rep. Paul Gosar (AZ-04) on January 30, 2017. This bill would nullify a rule from the National Park Service (NPS) expanding control over 319 new state or private oil and gas operations on NPS properties. This bill was referred to the House Committee on Natural Resources. While I do not sit on that committee, rest assured I will keep your thoughts in mind should it come before the full House of Representatives for a vote.
As the 115th Congress addresses the many challenges facing our nation, I hope you will continue to share your thoughts and concerns. To keep up with my work in Congress, you can follow me on Twitter and Facebook, or visit my website at mcsally.house.gov where you can sign up to receive my e-newsletter. Again, thank you for sharing your concerns. Please continue contacting my office regarding issues that you feel are important to you and Southern Arizona.
Member of Congress
