Obama Administration Seriously Harms Coal Industry in Eastern Kentucky
U.S. Senator Jim Bunning issued the following statement on the announcement yesterday by the Environment Protection Agency to curtail coal mining in eastern Kentucky.
"The Obama administration's war on coal has taken a costly turn for eastern Kentucky. Thousands of lives will be affected by this one decision that will have a devastating impact on the entire region. During these difficult economic times bureaucrats in Washington should be trying to find ways to create more jobs instead of playing political games with the livelihood of the good people in eastern Kentucky."
