Following the Department of the Interior’s announcement of a pause in new leases for coal mining on federal land, FreedomWorks CEO Adam Brandon commented:
“President Obama and his administration have opened up a new front in their war on the coal industry. Coal is one of America’s most valuable natural resources. The affordability of coal is one of the reasons lower and middle class Americans are able to heat their homes. This administration is putting its radical environmental agenda in front of the working-class.”
