As Coal Sessions Start, Cramer Calls for Talk in North Dakota

Rep. Kevin Cramer, R-N.D., is adding his voice to a growing list of lawmakers who think the Environmental Protection Agency should visit coal-country states for its public listening sessions on new emissions standards for power plants.

The agency is kicking off its 11-state listening tour in New York and Atlanta on Wednesday, but many GOP lawmakers think it is steering clear of the states most affected by the proposed regulations. Said Cramer in a release: "Excluding North Dakota and every other top 10 coal state prevents our citizens from speaking out on new regulations which could destroy their economic welfare. Fewer places on earth have greater interest or expertise in the coal industry than our communities."
