U.S. SENATE – U.S. Senator Steve Daines today delivered the following remarks at the weekly Republican Senate Leadership press conference slamming the Biden administration for continued attacks on made-in-America energy production. Earlier this month, President Biden’s Department of the Interior (DOI) Secretary Deb Haaland quietly issued a mineral withdrawal and prohibition of oil and gas development affecting Navajo tribal members. Daines also called attention to the recent rule from President Biden’s EPA that would shut down coal powered plants like Colstrip costing Montana hundreds of good-paying jobs and raising prices for families.
