Senator McConnell Comments on President Obama’s Latest Anti-Coal Proposal

WASHINGTON, D.C.U.S. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell made the following comments today regarding the Obama Administration’s latest anti-coal regulation:

“This costly proposed regulation is aimed squarely at the lifeblood of the commonwealth’s economy and the livelihoods of Coal Country workers and their families. Taken together with other Washington regulations that are already having a devastating impact, it’s impossible not to conclude that the Obama Administration is engaging in all-out economic warfare on these communities. I will continue to do all I can to fight back against the Obama Administration’s repeated and gratuitous attacks on Kentuckians whose only crime is working hard to maintain a reliable source of energy and provide for their families.”
