March 28, 2017
Press Release

Congressman Lamborn issued the following statement in response to President Trump's executive order rescinding environmental rules:

"I am pleased that the President is fulfilling his promise to help America become energy independent. With this Executive Order, President Trump has rolled back the Obama Administration's most harmful environmental regulations—including the Clean Power Plan, which has cost many American jobs and has driven up energy costs for American families. The time is long overdue to relieve the burdens of the Obama Administration's restrictive energy policies and return power to the states.

I look forward to a new energy strategy that unleashes our vast natural resources and creates new jobs to boost the American economy."

- Congressman Doug Lamborn (CO-05)
