Barrasso statement on DOIís Federal Coal Leasing announcement
by U.S. Senator John Barrasso
January 15, 2016

WASHINGTON, DC Ė Today (Friday, Jan. 15, 2016), U.S. Senator John Barrasso (R-Wyo.) released the following statement regarding the Department of the Interiorís (DOI) announcement on federal coal leasing.

"There seems to be no limit to the number of job-crushing regulations, executive orders and insults Secretary Jewell and President Obama will throw at Americaís middle class. This administration is in a full-scale war with coal communities and families.

"When rural America says President Obama has contempt for their lives and livelihoods, they mean decisions like today's announcement. A moratorium on federal coal leasing effectively hands a pink slip to the thousands of people in Wyoming and across the West employed in coal production.

"Iím prepared to act to protect middle-class workers from this latest attempt to turn out the lights on American energy."
