H.R. 2312 - Aged Distilled Spirits Act

Washington, D.C. – On Monday May 6th, Congressman Andy Barr helped introduce H.R. 1829, The Coal Jobs Protection Act, in the U.S. House of Representatives.  Barr is an original cosponsor of the House version of this legislation authored by Congresswoman Shelley Moore-Capito (WV), which would deprive the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) of the ability to unduly delay the mine permitting process.  These delays negatively impact coal-mining jobs in states like Kentucky.
