|Ctiizens for Coal and The COALition Testify in Washington: News Conference on House Passage of "Stop War on Coal Act"|
|Sunday - September 23, 2012|
WASHINGTON -- A delegation from the Citizens for Coal, Friends and Families of Coal and The COALition traveled to the U.S. Capitol Thursday to show support for the "Stop the War on Coal Act." Citizens for Coal President Roger Horton, co-chair of The COALition, Citizens for Coal Vice President Dennis Adkins and Friends and Families of Coal Activist and House of Delegates candidate Joshua Nelson, made the trip to Washington and participated in a news conference after the House overwhelmingly passed the bill.
The bill, which combines several previously passed House bills into a single bill that would essentially bring the Obama War on Coal to an end, now goes to the U.S. Senate, which has refused to consider the bills individually to this point.
Horton, Adkins and Nelson served notice on the Senate and on President Obama to pass the bill and bring the War on Coal to end, or they would marshal their support groups to take their refusal to act door-to-door and hold them accountable for their inaction.
