Washington – Wyoming Congresswoman and House GOP Conference Chair Liz Cheney (R-WY) joined 29 members of Congress in sending a letter to Department of the Interior Secretary David Bernhardt calling on suspending or reducing the federal royalty payments for coal, soda ash, oil, gas, and other minerals to the United States Treasury during the coronavirus pandemic. 

The letter highlights how this action will ensure America continues its international energy dominance while also helping to save essential industry jobs, many of which are located in heavily impacted rural communities. The full letter can be seen here and reviewed below:
