U.S. Senator Mike Enzi, R-Wyo., issued the following statement today concerning the Department of Interior’s recently released regulations on hydraulic fracturing.
“Once again President Obama has decided to do what he can to smother America’s energy development. Wyoming has already issued hydraulic fracturing regulations for our state and these new federal rules will do nothing but delay the permitting process,” said Enzi. “We are 50 unique states. A federal, one-size-fits-all approach increases the power base in Washington, but the public at large benefits more when each state regulates based on what is best for its own residents.”
