Gov. Earl Ray Tomblin today issued the below statement following the United States Supreme Court ruling:
"I am deeply disappointed in today's decision by the U.S. Supreme Court," Gov. Tomblin said. "This is yet another blow to West Virginia's coal miners, their families and our energy industry. I am committed to working with our federal delegation to closely monitor the effects of this ruling. I hope this ruling does not foreshadow the Court's view on pending greenhouse gas regulations."
