Barr Urges President to Abandon Anti-Coal Policies
September 18, 2013
On Tuesday, September 17, Congressman Andy Barr (KY-6) spoke on the floor of the United States House of Representatives about the Obama Administration's radical energy-rationing agenda that threatens Kentucky families, workers, and entire industries across the Commonwealth and the country.
As Barr points out, the Obama EPA's "regulatory carbon tax is the keystone of a radical environmental agenda, the disastrous results of which are already known in my district of central and eastern Kentucky. The New Source Performance Standards will finish the job that a deadlocked permitting process and multibillion-dollar regulations like Utility MACT have started: killing the coal industry and driving up the cost of energy, a top-line budget item for families already struggling to get by in this President's economy."
