Congressman Lee Terry (R-NE) today voted in support of the Stop the War on Coal Act, H.R. 3409, which passed the House of Representatives by a bipartisan vote of 233-175.

"This is a great day for domestic energy production. By voting in a bipartisan manner, the House has taken a firm stance in support of our energy security," Terry said. "We must continue to fight for the workers and communities who rely on the coal industry and for every American family who cannot afford to see their energy bills increase due to mine closures. Instead of allowing more regulations to diminish this industry, this bill will allow us to continue to fight for jobs, a better economy and energy security."
