Washington, D.C. – Congresswoman Liz Cheney’s (WY-AL) statement on EPA Administrator Pruitt’s directive to end “Sue & Settle”:

“I strongly support EPA Administrator Pruitt’s directive to end the practice of “Sue & Settle.” For far too long the Obama-era EPA worked hand-in-hand with far-left environmental organizations to promote their extreme agenda at the expense of hard-working men and women in Wyoming. This directive starts a necessary path for the EPA to correct and restore the transparency that was often lacking during the Obama Administration and prevent Wyoming taxpayer dollars from being used to feed an endless cycle of frivolous lawsuits.”
