U.S. Senator Mike Enzi, R-Wyo., issued the following statement after Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Administrator Lisa Jackson announced that she would resign from her position in January.
"Under this Administration, the EPA has had an anti-energy and therefore anti-Wyoming agenda. The regulations and red tape that have flowed from this one agency have helped slow our economic recovery and have ignored the concerns of farmers, ranchers, and our energy industry. Unfortunately, this is being driven by the White House and I'm not convinced that a new agency head will make much of a difference in the policies we will see over the next four years. There is always a possibility that someone with a more aggressive environmental agenda will lead the EPA in its war on coal and traditional forms of energy."
