Lummis Condemns Biden EPA for Disapproving Wyoming’s Jim Bridger Power Plant Regional Haze Plan

January 13, 2022

WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Senator Cynthia Lummis (R-WY) condemned the Biden administration’s EPA for proposing to disapprove Wyoming’s revised regional haze State Implementation Plan at the Jim Bridger Power Plant.

“The EPA’s decision today is a complete reversal from that of career EPA employees during the previous administration,” Senator Lummis said. “The Biden EPA’s decision here is needlessly hurting Wyoming’s energy workers and threatening America’s energy independence as well. It is blatantly political, and I will continue to block President Biden’s EPA nominees over this issue. Wyoming has worked tirelessly to comply with federal law on its regional haze plan for the Jim Bridger Power Plant. The Biden administration’s decision to reverse course to appease environmental activists, including climate czars in the White House, will not help the people, or the environment, of Wyoming.”
