Congressman Mooney Statement on Radical EPA Energy Rule

Today, the Biden Administration finalized a new Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) rule that forces coal-fired power plants to capture smokestack emissions or be shut down.

“President Biden is running the most radical left-wing administration in history. President Biden has escalated the War on Coal that was started by President Obama. The Biden Administration has been dictating outrageous rules from Washington with utter disregard for the impact on hardworking coal communities. Biden’s out-of-control EPA is laser-focused on closing every coal plant in West Virginia and ushering in higher energy prices via the Green New Deal. I’m focused on ensuring West Virginia’s energy jobs and the American economy are protected. I will fight to rein in the Biden Administration’s radical overreach that threatens to move our country into darkness,” said Congressman Alex X. Mooney.
