Congressman Hal Rogers (KY-05) Introduces Bill to Stop the EPA’s War on Coal

Standing up to the EPA's continued attacks on the coal industry through regulation & the purposeful bureaucratic delay of issuing permits, Congressman Hal Rogers (KY-05) has introduced HR 6113, The Electric Reliability Protection Act.....
Washington, DC, Sep 15 - Today, U.S. Congressman Hal Rogers (KY-05) spoke at the FACES of Coal rally on Capitol Hill and energized hundreds of coal miners who traveled from all over Appalachia to make sure their voices were heard. Rogers spoke out against the EPA’s war on coal and introduced legislation, H.R. 6113, the Electric Reliability Protection Act, which would stop the EPA and Administration’s attempt to regulate coal mining out of business.

“At a time when our nation faces 9.6% unemployment, bureaucrats in Washington are trying to put an entire sector of our economy out of business,” said Rogers. “From the devastating Cap and Trade bill, to the EPA’s absurd directives on carbon dioxide, to continued delays in the coal mining permitting process, the Administration is threatening 1 out of every 4 Appalachian coal mining jobs. Because of these political games, 2 billion tons of coal are going untapped – that is enough to power the nation for two years.

In effect, this bill would stop the Czar like tactics of EPA Director Lisa Jackson and would force the EPA to allow the public a chance to voice our opinion on the heavy-handed regulatory tactics being implemented to destroy not only the coal industry -- but small business which are being stealthily attacked under the guise of the Integrated Urban Air Toxics Strategy.

Helping to enable these guerrilla-like tactics by the EPA are Congressman Dennis Kucinich, Congresswoman Betty Sutton (OH -13) & Congressman John Boccieri (OH-16) -- all supporters of the House Cap & Trade bill. With Ohio bleeding jobs and a predicted $8 billion bust in our state budget (thanks to Governor Strickland) one would think these three Pelosi puppets would do everything in their power to do what is best for OH. But we see that is not the case and it appears they would rather see our state unemployment rate and your electric rates go higher than the national debt!

Please contact these N/E Ohio Congresscritters, urge them to sign on in support of the Electric Reliability Protection Act and if they don't.... remind them November is coming!
