CHARLESTON, WV - Republican gubernatorial candidate Moore Capito released the following statement on the Biden Administrations proposed regulation on coal and natural gas power plants:
“President Biden launched another hit on West Virginia energy production today by proposing that every power plant in our state adopt uneconomical and ineffective technology or risk shut down. At a time when America needs to return to energy independence, these proposed regulations will have a chilling effect on our economy and devastating impact on family checkbooks.”
“West Virginia coal and natural gas are proven and reliable sources of clean energy. It makes no sense for President Biden and overreaching DC bureaucrats to use the regulatory process to hurt our economy and hard-working families. Governors are the last line of defense in the battle to stop the insanity coming out of Washington DC. I will stand up and fight them every step of the way and protect West Virginia’s future. A future that is built on an all-of-the-above energy policy and return to American energy independence.”
