Barrasso statement on Interior decision to block access to oil shale resources in the West
by Senator Barrasso media release
March 22, 2013

WASHINGTON, D.C. Ė Today (Friday, March 22, 2013), U.S. Senator John Barrasso (R-Wyoming) spoke out against the Obama Administrationís decision to vastly reduce the acreage available for oil shale development in Wyoming, Colorado, and Utah.

"Once again, this Administration has chosen to block access to American energy in the West instead of supporting policies that promote our nationís energy security.

"Todayís decision to reduceóby about 66 percentóthe amount of Federal lands available for oil shale production in Wyoming, Colorado, and Utah will have a direct, negative impact on job growth in the West. This plan will only lead to more uncertainty and discourage companies from investing in American energy production.

"If the Administration is serious about creating jobs and increasing American energy production, they will scrap this plan and instead fully support producing our oil shale resources."
