From the letter:

Dear Ms. Papageorgiou and Commissioner Segos:

Thank you for the opportunity to comment on the Stakeholder Regulation Outline for Oil and Gas Sector Emissions (6 NYCRR Part 203) recently issued by the Department of Environmental Conservation (DEC). We are glad to see DEC take on the challenge of controlling pollution from the oil and gas sector.

Please accept these comments on behalf of Earthworks, a national nonprofit organization committed to protecting communities and the environment from the impacts of mining and energy development while seeking sustainable solutions. For more than 25 years, we have fulfilled our mission by working with communities and grassroots groups to reform government policies, improve corporate practices, influence investment decisions, and encourage responsible materials sourcing and consumption.
