“Not so fast,” says the EPA
You may be sick of hearing about the coal industry's efforts to weaken water quality standards for aluminum and selenium, which have been ongoing for a few years now. These changes were codified in last year's "Coal Jobs and Safety Act," and the corresponding rules are in this year's bundle, H.B. 4053. Well, hopefully you won't mind hearing some good news. More

Coal Association uses flawed study to justify tax cut
By John Street, guest columnist. The West Virginia Coal Association wants the 2016 Legislature to reduce the state's coal severance tax in order to "benefit the West Virginia economy."
