“It was great to have
decision makers, ex-
miners, planners and
others from coal com-
panies on hand (Blue-
field Coal Show).
that variety of people really speaks well
to all the exhibitors, and the purchasing
people, of course were here as well. Ex-
hibitors came from all around the eastern
US. We have a good cross-section of the
mining industry represented from the pur-
chasing side of things. That was exciting
to us as well.”
– Robert “Bob” Ramsey, general chair-
man of the Bluefield Coal Show.

of political theater
(Senate rejects attack on ACE rule). The ACE
(affordable clean energy) rule shows that it is possible to advance the
nation’s environmental protections while preserving the rightful authority
of the states to manage their own unique energy infrastructure and
electric grids. Unlike the prior administration, this EPA has chosen to follow the law
instead of picking winners and losers, and through that path has allowed for a smart,
responsible, all-of-the-above energy strategy that continues to support affordable,
reliable electricity for all Americans.”
