Steve Daines is Standing Against Obama's War On Coal

Posted: Updated:


Congressman Steve Daines is standing against the Obama Administration's attempt to wage a war on American coal energy.

Obama's plan to impose new regulations will force higher costs on American families and could be a major threat to good paying Montana jobs.

Daines stated, "The E.P.A.'s latest job-killing regulations show how committed President Obama is to waging a war on American energy, with little regard to how these costly policies will affect Americans' access to affordable energy and the thousands of jobs that depend on our energy industry. In Montana, where more than half of our power comes from coal, we have already seen the devastating consequences of President Obama's war on coal-from rising energy costs to the mothballing of the Corette Power Plant in Billings, we know firsthand how harmful these misguided and short-sighted policies can be. This is a war on Montana energy, Montana families and small businesses and Montana jobs, and I remain committed to stopping the president's job-killing agenda."

Montana coal mining energy employs more that twelve hundred workers and our state as a whole is ranked sixth for overall coal production nationwide.
