Bray comments on President Obama's environmental speech

Posted: Updated:

President Obama announced today what I can only presume he hopes is the death blow for coal-fired electricity.

We can debate the so-called "war on coal" and the real reasons behind this kind of posturing, but reality is realty and our state needs to understand what's at stake.

It's fair to say that coal has kept the lights on for generations, but our elected leaders have to create a climate that allows all business to flourish.

It's clear Washington no longer cares about the Mountain State, so it's up to us to create a better West Virginia.
