Daines Leads Opposition to Biden Administration’s Attempt to Increase Regulation on Montana Oil Production

U.S. SENATE – U.S. Senator Steve Daines led a measure challenging the Biden Administration’s rule that would force more burdensome regulations on new and existing Montana oil production. This new set of regulations would cause prices to skyrocket, first for Montana producers, then for Montana consumers.

“President Biden will stop at nothing to appease the far-Left environmental groups who want to shut down domestic energy production, and the results are devastating to Montana’s small energy producers. We must put a stop to Biden’s heavy-handed regulations that are bad for our pocketbooks, America’s energy security and our national security.” Daines said.
