Statement on Obama administration’s coal lease moratorium 

DENVER—Advancing Colorado Executive Director Jonathan Lockwood released the following statement on the Obama administration imposing a moratorium on coal leases:

“Obama is making it even more difficult for us to be self-sustaining and energy independent, and would rather fill up the big wallets of ayatollahs and mullahs in Iran. He would rather buy oil and gas from big polluters in Iran than from job creators in America.”
