As our nation moves forward to implement the trillion dollar Bi-partisan Infrastructure legislation to update and modernize America’s roads, bridges and other critical infrastructure, West Virginia coal will once again be called upon to provide the energy that will create the steel and provide the power to propel this massive, nationwide undertaking.
This is tremendous news that holds great promise for all American citizens and the future of our country. We applaud Senators Manchin and Capito and Congressman McKinley for supporting this transformational legislation.
For West Virginia, this investment is exponentially beneficial. Not only will we see a significant buildout and repair of our infrastructure and transportation systems, but our miners and coal industry stand to be recognized and, hopefully, appreciated for stepping up to meet the task at hand.
