U.S. Senator John Barrasso (R-WY) was elected senior member of the Senate Committee on Energy and Natural Resources (ENR) for the 117th Congress.
Barrasso said “As ranking member, my focus will be on promoting American energy security, economic strength, and environmental stewardship. America’s West is blessed with abundant natural resources that we’ve used to become an energy superpower.
The United States needs an all-of-the-above energy strategy that includes traditional fuels like coal, natural gas, and oil, as well as nuclear and renewables. I will promote America’s incredible national parks, while also protecting all the important economic uses of our public lands and the jobs that come with them.”
