Mark Gordon on Free Trade

 

 


Level the playing field for oil, gas, and mineral exports

The world demands what Wyoming has to offer, especially when it comes to our mineral and energy sectors.

Wyoming continues to be a global leader in trona, uranium, and bentonite production. We must continue to advocate for all of these industries, including fighting for level-playing fields internationally.

Around the globe technology keeps advancing, there is progress benefitting our world by burning coal more cleanly and efficiently. Japan and Korea have built the most efficient clean burning fleets of coal fired electric generation ever.

Technologies employed there, when paired with Powder River Basin coal, can reduce the overall carbon emitted to the atmosphere. And yet, our access to these Asian markets remains restricted, tied up in permit after permit. I believe this to be an unconstitutional restraint of trade. And I will strongly advocate for access to all markets.

Establish trade offices in Taiwan, Japan, and across Asia

I am excited that we established a trade office in Taiwan last year and one of the first products to sell there was Wyoming beef. It is evidently much sought after in Taipei's finest restaurants. And I am thrilled that after a hiatus, Wyoming lamb is again going to Japan. We need to expand on these efforts across Asia.
