SIGNED INTO LAW: Brooks Bipartisan Environmental Protection Bill
WASHINGTON, DC – The President signed into law H.R. 1733, to direct the Secretary of Energy to review and update a report on the energy and environmental benefits of the re-refining of used lubricating oil, a bipartisan bill introduced by Congresswoman Susan W. Brooks (R-IN05), which passed by the House on December 12, 2017, and Senate on December 20, 2018.
“Our country is already re-refining lubricated oil through a process that rids the oil of harmful contaminants and restores the oil to its original effectiveness,” said Brooks. “I am proud the President signed this bipartisan bill into law because having an up-to-date report of the energy and environmental benefits of re-refined lubricating oil will help Congress work with the private sector in order to ensure we are responsibly and safely helping to reduce waste and benefit American consumers while protecting the environment.”
