Governor Pence Visits Sullivan Co. Coal Mine
Governor Mike Pence paid a visit to Peabody Energy’s Bear Run Coal Mine in Carlisle Thursday.
Pence renewed his pledge to stand with Indiana coal against what he calls the Obama Administration’s “War on Coal.”
The Governor says the EPA’s latest proposed regulations for new power plant emissions and regulations that have preceded them are bad for Indiana.
Pence says they will cost Hoosier workers and families in terms of higher electricity rates, lost jobs, and lost business growth due to a lack of affordable, reliable electricity.
