“Kentucky has some of the lowest electric rates in the country. In Eastern Kentucky, coal mines have always been the major industry for of families to make a living, but a lot of our miners are losing their jobs. We can’t just sit back and let people like Obama and Clinton eliminate affordable power and destroy the lives of all these hard workers. I pray our government wakes up and realizes they are destroying the American way of life.” – Alice B.

A bill moving through the North Dakota legislature, SB 2314 on the Senate side, would call for a study on the state’s future energy supply. Some legislators, like Senator Jessica Unruh (R-33), have called for action to “level the playing field,” as subsidies in the state for wind power often causes operators to favor those sources. Coal power provides the reliable baseload electricity that North Dakota needs, read our thoughts on the bill and North Dakota’s energy future here: http://www.americaspower.org/north-dakota-recognizes-importance-coal-fueled-baseload-electricity/
