Stopping the War on Coal


Date: Sept. 24, 2012

On Friday, the House passed a package of energy bills entitled the Stop the War on Coal Act. This energy package would prohibit the Secretary of the Interior from issuing new rules or regulations that will adversely impact mining jobs and our economy. According to a recent CBO report, this package would cut discretionary spending by $245 million between 2013 and 2017. This legislation will protect American jobs and support U.S. energy production.
