Enzi statement on “stream protection rule”

Press Release – U.S. Senator Mike Enzi, R-Wyo., issued the following statement after the Department of Interior announced the final “stream protection rule”, which directly impacts the coal mining industry.

“It is unsettling that this final rule from the Department of the Interior, aimed at stopping coal production in western states, is being released right before President Obama leaves office,” Enzi said. “It is clear that the ‘stream protection rule’ is more about stopping energy production than about protecting the environment. I look forward to working with President-elect Trump and the new Congress to confront this and other overreaching regulations.”
