Speaker Paul Ryan

“Today, we delivered on another promise. The Department of Interior’s stream protection rule—which is now repealed—could have wiped out one-third of American coal mining jobs. Coal country will finally receive relief from the Obama administration’s eight-year war on affordable energy. This regulatory reprieve is just the beginning. Congress will continue to stand up for American workers by abolishing harmful regulations and revitalizing our economy.”
