We promised to fight against the EPA’s war on the energy sector in Kentucky, particularly the relentless attacks on the coal industry. And we’ve presided over a step change in Kentucky’s relationship with EPA. The Trump EPA and Kentucky’s Environment and Energy Cabinet have formed a much better working relationship. Both these organizations recognize the essential value of Kentucky coal as an ongoing part of our energy portfolio while fully appreciating and protecting the magnificent environment of this state.

We will continue to work to ensure that Kentucky coal plays a vital role going into the future,

that an “all of the above” energy strategy includes coal and that our commitment to a clean environment for all Kentuckians never wavers.
