Senate Democrats Ready to Exterminate US Coal Print E-mail
by Tom McGregor    Tue, Sep 16, 2014, 08:33 PM

Senate Democrats are pushing for legislation that would dramatically halt coal mining in the USA.

The Houston Chronicle reports that, "A U.S. senator said Tuesday he will ask fellow lawmakers to halt coal sales on federal lands in the West after a senior Obama administration official declined to suspend the troubled government program."

Sen. Mark Udall (D.-Co.) is a strong proponent of shutting down the coal industry.

According to the Houston Chronicle, "Massachusetts Sen. Ed Markey said the Interior Department moved too slowly on promised reforms since the Democrat raised concerns earlier this year that “bargain-basement” lease sales to a handful of mining companies might have cost taxpayers $200 million or more."

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D.-Nv.) touts solar energy to replace coal.
