Washington, D.C. – Today, Ranking Member of the Senate Energy and Natural Resources Committee Maria Cantwell (D-Wash.) made the following statement on the Trump Administration’s executive order:

“President Trump’s executive order today marks an irresponsible retreat from making polluters pay, promoting energy efficiency, growing our clean energy economy, addressing the threat of climate change and ensuring taxpayers get a fair return for the minerals they own,” Senator Cantwell said. “The Trump Administration is sabotaging the United States’ chances of becoming the world’s clean energy superpower in order to line the pockets of polluters. I will oppose this wrong-headed order with every tool at my disposal.”
