Senator Barrasso defends his criticism of EPA regulations

Apr 30, 2012

  U-S Senator John Barrasso continues to be critical of the Obama administration over environmental regulations that he says will cost Wyoming and the energy industry jobs. 

During an appearance on Wyoming Public Radio, Barrasso was asked why Wyoming would not be able to capitalize on regulations that could benefit the state’s low sulfur coal reserves.

“When the administration goes against what’s coming out of coal fired power plants and their closing across the country.  The makes it harder to sell any coal and use any coal.”

Barrasso says the environment should be protected, the recent E-P-A regulations have gone too far.
