Re: Proposed rescission of Bureau of Land Management Hydraulic Fracturing Rule, 82 Fed. Reg. 34464 (July 25, 2017)

Dear Secretary Zinke,
Please do not rescind the Bureau of Land Management's 2015 rule addressing hydraulic fracturing on federal and Indian lands. The rule is the product of nearly five years of agency work, expert input, public comments and hearings, and it provides much-needed updates to the Bureau's existing regulations, which were last overhauled in the 1980s. The 2015 rule requires companies to store fracturing wastes in tanks rather than pits, and for the first time will require prior review and approval of fracturing operations on public and tribal lands. The rule also modernizes the agency's well construction and testing standards and mandates disclosure of the chemicals that companies use in fracking fluid. All of these are reasonable, cost-effective measures that will better protect our public lands, drinking water, wildlife and public health and safety. They should not be abandoned.

The American people worked hard to get these vital protections in place, please do not reverse them. Thank you for your consideration of these comments.

Suggested message: you support protecting students' civil rights.

 I urge the Department of Education to keep Title IX in its current form so that students can learn in an environment free from sexual violence and that victims’ rights continue to be prioritized. I also urge the Department to preserve all current guidance on sexual, racial, and disability-based harassment; access to athletic opportunities; gender equity in career and technical education; single-sex schools; equal access to educational resources; nondiscriminatory school discipline; racial diversity programs; the rights of students with disabilities in charter schools; and the rights of English language learners.

It is critical that you to keep current regulations and guidance in place and to continue enforcing these civil rights laws so that all students have an equal opportunity to learn and thrive free of discrimination, harassment and violence.

Sincerely,
