Coats Talks Coal at VU
U.S. Senator Dan Coats sounded a warning about the effects of coal regulation in a speech yesterday at Vincennes University
Coats says tighter regulations on coal can be traced back to President Barack Obama's environmental policies and the new environmental regulations will keep new coal-fired plants from starting up.
Both Coats and coal representatives warn if the regulations stay un-checked, coal industry jobs could be in jeopardy and electric rates could soar as much as 80 percent.
