Wyoming governor used his state of state to vow to fight Biden’s energy policies


Gov. Mark Gordon addresses the 2024 Wyoming Legislature and gives his State of the State address on Monday, Feb. 12, 2024, at the Capitol in Cheyenne.



When it comes to state of the state addresses by Governors, Oklahoma Gov. Kevin Stitt’s recent address and his remarks about energy were calm compared to the defiant address given by Wyoming Gov. Mark Gordon who vowed to continue standing up to the President’s green energy policies and what they’re doing to his state.

In his recent State of the State speech, Gov. Gordon openly addressed his defiance of the Biden White House and promised a fight over what he labeled as “Biden’s warped policies.”

Gov. Gordon said Biden’s energy policies were not only “unwise” but put “our economy, our very way of life, at risk,” reported the Cowboy State Daily. He added he could not “be as blunt as my rancher core wants me to be” about the Biden administration, meaning he apparently wanted to remain polite in his criticism.

“I have, and will continue to use, the bully pulpit of my office to engage friends and skeptics around the country about the necessity of investing in fossil energy and mining natural resources,” he said reported the Wyoming newspaper.

The governor’s vow to keep on fighting comes after the state has already filed 39 cases in court against the federal government, including the state’s defense of the Wyodak and Jim Bridger power plants.
