Bishop: President Obama Begins Moratorium on Affordable Energy


WASHINGTON, D.C., January 15, 2016 -

Committee on Natural Resources Chairman Rob Bishop (R-UT) issued the following statement on the Obama Administration’s coal lease moratorium on Federal lands.  

“Yep, there they go again. Americans now know the ‘all-of-the-above’ energy agenda the President repeatedly claimed to support was an election year lie. This unprecedented action will completely shut down coal leasing on Federal lands and will disproportionately harm the poorest among us. We should be putting our nation on the path of continued energy strength – not undermining our energy security at the bequest of radical environmentalists who wish to keep our resources under lock and key. Unfortunately, the President’s bid to solidify his legacy with the extreme left will come at the expense of America’s energy needs and will make the lives of people more expensive and more uncomfortable.”
