Don’t complain about the EPA; think ‘tomorrow’

April 2, 2014
The Marietta Times

After all that has happened in the state of West Virginia with the water for 300,000 people, you would think our elected officials would want more regulation. As reported in the Parkersburg News and Sentinel, they expressed annoyance that the Supreme Court upheld the EPA ruling that acted within its power to veto a permit on mountaintop mining by the Spruce Mine Co. U.S. Representative Capito is going to introduce legislation to end the EPA power so she can protect jobs. Senator Joe Manchin said that project would have created about 200 jobs. Is that all? I think that more jobs could be created other ways than coal.
