Last month, Congressional Republicans made initial moves to repeal a Bureau of Land Management (BLM) rule aimed at reducing methane emissions from oil and gas development. This BLM regulation is modeled, in part, after a state law in Colorado. News director Carolyn Sackariason sat down with environment reporter Elizabeth Stewart-Severy to talk about how such a repeal would affect Coloradans.

Aspen native Elizabeth Stewart-Severy is excited to be making a return to both the Red Brick, where she attended kindergarten, and the field of journalism. She has spent her entire life playing in the mountains and rivers around Aspen, and is thrilled to be reporting about all things environmental in this special place. She attended the University of Colorado with a Boettcher Scholarship, and graduated as the top student from the School of Journalism in 2006. Her lifelong love of hockey lead to a stint working for the Colorado Avalanche, and she still plays in local leagues and coaches the Aspen Junior Hockey U-19 girls.
