Congressman Bill Shuster issued the following statement in response to President Barack Obama's Climate Change Proposal.
"The President's continued "War on Coal' is crushing families and destroying our economy. The administration refuses to accept that the coal industry employs over 760,000 Americans and helps to keep energy costs down. Instead, the President allows the EPA to run rampant with regulations that are putting the coal industry and hard working Pennsylvanians out of business.
I am focused on an All of the Above Energy Plan that is going to benefit Pennsylvanians by creating jobs and lowering energy costs. Shutting down the coal industry will not help our struggling economy. We need to increase our domestic energy production and keep American families working. I will continue to fight the Administration's over regulation of this vital industry and encourage the production of domestic energy resources."
