Coal advocates to storm Capitol Hill - CowboyByte

Coal executives and miners will storm the Capitol next week to put pressure on Congress and the White House over regulatory policies that they say are killing jobs.  Sen. Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) and 30 members of Congress will participate Tuesday in the Count on Coal coalition’s rally.

McConnell has vowed to make what the GOP is calling the administration’s “war on coal” a main issue in his 2014 reelection campaign.
After the Environmental Protection Agency announced a listening tour to gather feedback on new regulations for power plants, McConnell cried foul, claiming the tour did not include any stops in coal-reliant states.
