WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today, U.S. Senator John Barrasso (R-Wyo.) released the following statement regarding the Biden administration’s Environmental Protection Agency proposal to disapprove Wyoming’s revised regional haze State Implementation Plan at the Jim Bridger Power Plant.
“The Biden administration's war on American energy knows no bounds. The proposal to disapprove the State of Wyoming’s revised regional haze plan is not driven by sound science or sensible policy. It is pure political theater that puts the future of Wyoming’s energy workers at risk.
“The administration's dismissal of a carefully negotiated plan that the EPA once supported will kill good jobs in Wyoming. It will also further strain our electric grid and drive up energy costs for families at a time when they can least afford it.”
