Mead: Coal Is Part Of Our Future

(Cheyenne) – Governor Matt Mead says the Environmental Protection Agency has been taking a heavy-handed approach with its regulations and is attempting to interfere with state primacy over environmental programs and the coal industry.

The statement comes in response to new, proposed EPA regulations, 650 pages worth, to limit carbon emissions for power plants.

Mead says coal, clean air, water and a robust economy are all parts of our future as they are parts of our present.

He says the federal government should follow Wyoming’s success and leadership on energy in all ways, but especially when proposing rules and regulations.
