McConnell and Paul Comment on Alpha Natural Resources Announcement


Location: Washington, DC

Senate Republican Leader Mitch McConnell and Senator Rand Paul released the following statement Friday regarding the announcement by Alpha Natural Resources that they will reduce coal production in Kentucky:

"Today's announcement by Alpha Natural Resources is another blow to one of Kentucky's leading industries and job producers. It's also another example of how the onerous regulations set by this Administration are negatively affecting our economy. That's why it's so important for Congress to rein in EPA's overreach, which will remove the uncertainty in the economy, where burdensome rules and regulations are stifling job creation and increasing production cost that are being passed on to consumers."
