For Immediate Release:

Washington, D.C. – Congresswoman Liz Cheney (WY-AL) released a statement on EPA Administrator Scott Pruitt’s decision to repeal the Obama Administration’s Clean Power Plan.

“EPA Administrator Pruitt’s decision to repeal the Obama Administration’s disastrous “clean power plan” is an important and necessary step towards reversing the harmful Obama-era policies that strangled our economy. Wyoming’s communities and fossil fuel industry were hit the hardest by Obama’s anti-coal agenda for the past eight years. For too long the clean power plan killed jobs and needlessly wasted hundreds of millions of taxpayer dollars in an unsuccessful attempt to increase renewable energy and decrease fossil fuels.”
