The Wyoming Mining Association (WMA) has announced its support of Matt Mead for Governor. This early endorsement recognizes the leadership of Governor Mead in developing a Wyoming energy policy, taking a stand against federal overreach and pursuing new markets for Wyoming coal, said Jonathan Downing, Executive Director of the WMA.

The Wyoming Mining Association credits Mead with protecting jobs, the completion of significant coal leases and working against the Environmental Protection Agency’s unreasonable regulatory dictates.

The Wyoming mining industry contributes over $6.3 billion to the state’s economy each year, and pays taxes that keep individual tax burdens low. Dowing said the WMA looks forward to continuing to work with Governor Mead to keep Wyoming on top as an energy producing state.

The Wyoming Mining Association (WMA) is a statewide trade organization that represents and advocates for 39 mining company members producing bentonite, coal, trona and uranium, as well as one company in the permitting and development process for a rare earth element mine. WMA also represents 129 associate member companies, two railroads and 180 individual members.
