H.R. 3409, The Stop the War on Coal Act Key Vote Recap
Today, the House voted on H.R. 3409, The Stop the War on Coal Act. This bill was designed to prevent regulations that would adversely impact employment in coal mines in the U.S., that would reduce the amount of coal available for domestic consumption or for export, or that would designate any area as unsuitable for surface coal mining. In short, it would prevent many of burdensome regulations that hinder the economy and job creation.
American companies have had to eliminate thousands of jobs as a result of overregulation imposed upon them by the EPA. Accordingly, Heritage Action supported H.R. 3409 which was specifically designed to lessen the onslaught of EPA regulations. The current Administration has encouraged policies designed by EPA bureaucrats that are demonstrably harmful to consumers and job seekers alike. This legislation helps reverse this negative trend.
