Layoffs & Bankruptcy: Wyoming staggers from Fed Reg’s
“Choking the life out of the Coal and other carbon industry was a goal, a commitment of Pres. Barack Obama”
Citing the ‘Energy industry as the largest contributor’ to Wyoming’s ongoing economic strength, it was Governor Matt Meads ‘Action plan for Energy, Environment, and the Economy’. It was outlined in the ‘Leading the Charge document’. Today, however this plan is obsolete due to the Federal Regulations pushed by the Obama Administration.
It is in this document that the “Wyoming Mining association” said:
The development of Wyoming’s mineral resources supports the workforce, promotes economic well-being, and provides the raw materials for products that Americans use everyday.
The document states that in 2014, the GDP for Wyoming was $44 billion. The three top industries in the state that helped push Wyoming was energy, tourism, and agriculture. But specifically it was pointed out that the energy industry contributed the largest portion which was $16 billion dollars.
