Daines Slams Biden EPA Chief for Attacking Montana’s Colstrip Power Plant

  • April 30, 2024

"Now we know the Biden administration will flat out lie in order to enact its climate agenda."

U.S. Senator Steve Daines, a member of the Senate Energy and Natural Resources Committee, issued the following statement today in response to Biden administration Environmental Protection Agency Administrator Michael Regan accusing Montana's Colstrip Power Plant of "cheating the system" on clean air quality standards:

"The Biden administration's accusation that Colstrip is 'cheating the system' is a reprehensible lie and an attack on Montanans and our Montana way of life. The crushing mandates and regulations the Biden EPA issued last week were bad enough. Now we know the Biden administration will flat out lie in order to enact its climate agenda," said Daines.

Background:

Colstrip meets Montana state requirements for mercury emissions which are more stringent than the federal level.
