WASHINGTON, D.C. — Today, U.S. Senator John Barrasso (R-WY), chairman of the Senate Committee on Environment and Public Works (EPW), and Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Administrator Scott Pruitt released the following statements after meeting to discuss Wyoming’s environmental priorities.

“EPA Administrator Pruitt and I had a very productive meeting,” said Barrasso. “He is a valuable partner for our state. We agree that the EPA needs to end the Obama-era regulatory rampage, which has hurt people in Wyoming. Now, the EPA is working with Wyoming to find commonsense ways to protect our land, air, and water.”

“I appreciated the opportunity to meet with Senator Barrasso today and discuss the issues important to our nation and to the people of Wyoming,” said Administrator Pruitt. “The people of Wyoming and their elected officials deserve an EPA that is focused on the basics of protecting the environment, engaging with state and local partners, and ensuring sensible regulations for economic growth.”
