WASHINGTON, D.C.— Today, U.S. Senator Cynthia Lummis (R-WY) released the following statement after the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) withdrew its disapproval of the Wyoming Ozone Transportation Plan.
“For decades, Wyoming energy producers have excelled at providing affordable and reliable baseload energy to power our nation even as this administration has delivered fatal blows to domestic energy production with its shortsighted policies,” said Senator Lummis. “While I am pleased to see that EPA agrees with myself and other Wyoming officials that our state does not contribute to air pollution in downwind states, I believe the EPA would be wise to extend this same level of deference to other states and recognize that they—and not the federal government—are better stewards of their air, water and land.”
The Good Neighbor Rule would accelerate the Biden administration’s mission to shut down Wyoming’s fossil fuel power plants and weaken America’s energy grid by increasing the usage of unreliable wind and solar power.
In March 2023, Senator Lummis pressed Joe Goffman, head of the Office of Air and Radiation in the Environmental Protection Agency on his historically anti-American energy stances. Watch her full questioning here.
