You had better get up with your lawmakers if you want change. This Friday they vote on the “Stop The War On Coal Act”. And just how many coal miners know about this? Not many. Get this out to everyone you know and try to do something meaningful.

The House of Representatives is scheduled to vote Sept. 21 on its “Stop the War on Coal Act of 2012.”

The legislation packages five House bills crafted over the two years of the 112thCongress aimed at limiting regulation that affects coal and other industry, four of which were previously passed by the House.

  • H.R. 3409, the Coal Miner Employment and Domestic Energy Infrastructure Protection Act, to prevent the Secretary of the Interior from issuing new regulations that would adversely impact mining jobs;
  • H.R. 910, the Energy Tax Prevention Act, passed in April 2011, would prevent the Environmental Protection Agency from regulating greenhouse gas emissions under the Clean Air Act;
  • H.R. 2401, the Transparency in Regulatory Analysis of Impacts on the Nation Act, or TRAIN Act, passed in September 2011, would require analysis of the effects of proposed environmental regulations on manufacturing, energy prices and jobs;
  • H.R. 2273, the Coal Residuals Reuse and Management Act, passed in October 2011, curtailing the EPA’s ability to regulate the disposal of coal ash from power plants; and
  • H.R. 2018, Clean Water Cooperative Federalism Act, passed in July 2011, would limit EPA action with regard to state regulation of water quality.

A description of the proposed legislation may be found on the House Energy and Commerce Committee’s website
