FOWLER STATEMENT ON TRUMP E.O. ON COAL RULES

SPRINGFIELD, IL – State Sen. Dale Fowler (R-Harrisburg) offered the following comments after President Trump issued an Executive Order to scale back harmful EPA regulations that have decimated the nation’s coal industry.

“Southern Illinois, like much of the coal belt has felt the pain that was inflicted by the Obama Administration’s ‘War on Coal.’ Our friends and neighbors have endured years of staggering job losses only to be kicked even harder by a bureaucracy run amok,” Fowler said. “President Trump is delivering on his promise to help get government out of the way and off our miners’ backs. I stand ready to work with our Southern Illinois Congressional representation to do what we can at the state level to put our miners back to work.”
