Barr Condemns EPA's Strangling Overregulation of our Nation’s Economy

Feb 6, 2014

Congressman Andy Barr spoke on the House Floor about the Environmental Protection Agency's strangling overregulation of our nation’s economy.  As he pointed out, "The coal industry in my region in central and eastern Kentucky could be the poster child of this regulatory onslaught. According to the Commonwealth's recently released figures, more than 7,000 coal miners in the Appalachian coalfields have received pink slips since 2009; 2,232 of those jobs were lost last year alone, thanks in large part to the overreach of the EPA."
