March 28, 2017
Press Release

For Immediate Release:

Washington, D.C.- U.S. Congressman Liz Cheney (WY-AL) released the following statement regarding the Energy Independence Executive Order signed by President Trump.

“I welcome the important steps taken today by President Trump to terminate some of the Obama administration's devastating energy policies. Obama-era policies aimed to destroy our fossil fuel industry. They killed jobs and threatened economic instability in communities across the country and especially in Wyoming. In particular, the coal moratorium, imposed by the Obama Administration and lifted today by President Trump, was nothing short of a war on coal miners and their families.  I look forward to continuing my work with Wyoming’s delegation and my colleagues in the House and Senate to provide much-needed relief from strangling regulations. We will work every day to unleash the potential of our fossil fuel industries which support our freedom, our people, our jobs, our resources, and our way of life.”
