Bishop: Obama Administration is Exploiting Native Americans to Advance Their Extreme Environmental Agenda


WASHINGTON, D.C., September 23, 2016 -

Today, the U.S. Departments of the Army, the Interior and Justice invited tribal leaders to participate in government-to-government consultations on infrastructure permitting. Chairman Rob Bishop (R-UT) released the following statement:

"This administration has never cared about consulting local communities or Native tribes. Over the past eight years, tribes and Alaska Natives have documented the lack of consultation in the proposed hydraulic fracturing rule and the new offshore air rule respectively. Tribal consultation is always good enough when a project is denied, but never good enough when a project is approved. Meaningful consultation becomes meaningless when it’s selectively applied to advance a political agenda in the White House as they’ve once again pursued here.”
