AG Fox Fights to Protect Coal Workers; Why Won’t Bullock?
Helena, MT – Chairman Jeff Essmann of the Montana Republican Party issued the following statement praising Attorney General Tim Fox for filing a lawsuit against the Obama-EPA job-killing energy regulations:
“I am deeply appreciative of Attorney General Tim Fox for filing this lawsuit to protect Montana coal workers and their families from President Obama and the EPA’s job-killing energy regulations. These devastating and harmful regulations will threaten to eliminate thousands of Montana jobs. Tim’s actions show he is willing to fight to protect our good-paying jobs.”
“It’s not clear from Governor Bullock’s statement that he unequivocally supports this lawsuit. If Bullock truly supported our coal workers and their families why won’t he fight to protect their livelihoods? Montanans need a Republican Governor– alongside our other Republican elected officials– to fight for these family wage jobs.”
