I urge you to support affordable coal-generated electricity and coal jobs.

Affordable coal-generated electricity is the backbone of our economy. It's the energy resource that keeps everything from our town’s local stores to the nation’s biggest factories up and running, while providing jobs for thousands of Americans.

With many energy sectors unstable and gas prices always on the rise, Americans simply can't afford to have the cost of their household electricity driven up by any additional misguided regulations on American coal. We need to protect our domestic supply of coal.

With your support we can ensure that thousands of jobs and the availability of coal for affordable electricity are protected.

Call, email, and write your senators and representatives and tell them what is written above!

America as we know it depends on action from we the people!
