June 1, 2018
Press Release
“Our coal-fired power plants are a critical part of our nation’s power grid and must play a role in an all-of-the-above energy strategy.”

WASHINGTON – U.S. Representative Evan Jenkins (R-W.Va.) issued the following statement on the Trump administration’s directive on the role of coal-fired power plants in our national security:

“West Virginia coal has powered this nation and put food on the table for generations of hardworking miners and their families. Coal is a reliable, affordable, domestic source of energy, one that keeps the heat on during tough winters that tax our electrical grid. Our coal-fired power plants are a critical part of our nation’s power grid and must play a role in an all-of-the-above energy strategy. I thank President Trump for his continued support of coal energy and coal miners, and this directive is truly a step in the right direction,” Rep. Jenkins said.
