Sen. Paul Statement on Obama Administration's War on Coal

Statement

By:
Date:
Location: Washington, DC

Sen. Rand Paul today released the following statement regarding President Obama's continued assault on the coal industry.

"President Obama today declared a war on coal, and thus declared a war on Kentucky jobs and our economy. Whether it is through the retroactive denial of permits, onerous regulations on coal-fired power plants, or unreasonable environmental requirements, the policies of this Administration are threatening the very way of life that has sustained Kentucky communities for generations," Sen. Paul said. "As a defender of the free market and of coal, I will continue to fight back against the EPA and any other federal agency whose goal is to stifle coal production. I will continue to stand up for our miners in Washington as we continue to recognize the sacrifices they make to provide food for their families and energy for America."
