The U.S. House of Representatives passed comprehensive legislation to rein in the Environmental Protection Agency and stop the War on Coal.

Congresswoman Shelley Moore Capito (R-W.Va.) Co-Founder of the Congressional Coal Caucus, strongly supports this bill and has been a leading voice in Washington to stop the War on Coal.

"Because of the President's War on Coal, thousands of West Virginia families have to worry about where their next paycheck is going to come from. West Virginians love the Mountain state. We want to stay here and raise families, but the President's extreme policies are cripplingly entire towns and making it harder for workers to find jobs," stated Capito. "Americans want a balanced, all-of-the-above energy policy that includes coal, natural gas, oil and renewables. Unfortunately, the President is beholden to an extreme environmental lobby that will stop at nothing to shut down fossil fuels. The President claims he wants an all-of-the-above energy policy, but his actions say otherwise."
