I make no excuses for my support of the coal industry. My grandfather retired from Island Creek Coal company. When I was a kid, I didn't know how important coal was,…I just knew how important he was. He worked for Fies #9 and #11 and helped support an industry that has put electricity in our homes and food on our tables my entire life. Now, coal is more important than ever. It is America's abundant and Affordable energy resource. In fact, 93% of Kentucky's electricity is produced from coal. Source American Coalition for Clean Coal Electricity. Still, President Obama is doing everything he can to destroy our Coal Industry. If he has his way, our electrical bills "will necessarily skyrocket" Those are his words.

As your State Representative, I am working every day to protect our coal jobs and keep our electrical rates low.
