McConnell Opposes Anti-Coal FERC Nominee

Statement

By:
Date:
Location: Washington, DC

U.S. Senate Republican Leader Mitch McConnell issued the following statement regarding the nomination of Ron Binz to lead the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC):

"Ron Binz has been handpicked by the Senate Majority Leader to be another foot soldier in his and this Administration's War on Coal. Like the Majority Leader, Binz has a proven track record of hostility toward coal and other traditional fossil fuels. Representing the Commonwealth of Kentucky and thousands of hard working coal miners and their families, I cannot support Binz's nomination as the next chairman of FERC. His nomination is yet another threat to American energy and jobs and I will work to defeat it."
