|PA Coal Association Merged|
|Thursday - July 12, 2012|
Pennsylvania bituminous coal companies, workers and their families, and industry suppliers and manufacturers have announced the formation of the Pennsylvania Coal Alliance (FORCE).
Former State Senator John Pippy will serve as CEO of the newly-formed alliance. “I am excited to lead the Pennsylavania Coal Alliance. We are advocting for more than 40,000 coal companies, workers and families, and suppliers – but the reach of the industry and our Alliance is much broader than that,” said Pippy.
George Ellis, who served as President of the now-defunct Pennsylvania Coal Association, will stay on as the President of the Pennsylvania Coal Alliance, and will serve as the Alliance’s primary lobbyist.
