Bishop Calls Out Democrat Hypocrisy at Hearing
WASHINGTON, D.C., June 14, 2018 | Committee Press Office (202-225-2761)
Today, the House Natural Resources Committee Subcommittee on Energy and Mineral Resources held a legislative hearing on a discussion draft titled the Enhancing State Management of Federal Lands and Waters Act, which would increase the role of states in federal mineral management while respecting the American taxpayer. During the hearing, Chairman Rob Bishop (R-Utah) acknowledged the importance of including state input when dealing with federal resource policy decisions, not just when Democrat states express concerns.
Democrats Rush to Defend Federalism…But Only For Coastal States.
Bishop rightfully raised the question to Committee Democrats after they touted the importance of federalism, but only, apparently, in certain circumstances. The Committee Democrats had no response when asked why the minority only takes seriously the input from some governors.###
