McKinley Talks Outlook, Priorities For Coal

This week I spoke to a board meeting of American Coalition for Clean Coal Electricity to talk about the outlook for coal in the next two years. We touched on priorities, including protecting resiliency of the grid, spurring energy innovation, and confirming judges that will interpret - not make - the law. We need to continue pushing the administration to finalize the Affordable Clean Energy Rule, prevent the premature retirement of coal plants, and incentivize technology to extend the life of plants. This is imperative as the closure of coal plants are a national security and economic threat.

New Leadership At NETL

We congratulate WVU’s Brian Anderson, who was named Director of the National Energy Technology Laboratory. NETL’s mission is vital to America’s energy future. We have worked with Brian over the years, and are confident NETL will continue as a leader in energy innovation under his leadership.

Brian not only brings stellar academic credentials to the position, but he also understands the intersection of government, academia, and industry better than most. It is very exciting to have a West Virginia native who is committed to the Mountain State in this role. We look forward to continuing our work with NETL and Brian.

It is a priority for West Virginia to get people into the guard’s position so it is commensurate with other facilities around the county. As Congress considers legislation for prison reform, I will continue to support the guards who risk their lives every day to protect us from danger.
