McKinley brings back fly ash bill

(Herald Star 06-06-2013) Rep. David B. McKinley re-introduced his bill regarding regulation of coal ash Tuesday, and he suspects the Environmental Protection Agency will support the measure as Congress considers it this time. House Resolution 2218, the "Coal Residuals Reuse and Management Act of 2013," contains provisions crafted by the Senate during the last Congress.

House GOP bill would cut EPA out of coal ash regulation

(The Hill 06-04-2013) Legislation from a Republican lawmaker would almost entirely cut the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) out of regulating the ash produced from power plants that burn coal. A bill introduced by Rep. David McKinley (R-W.Va.) this week seeks to override the EPA's proposal to regulate the ash, which Republicans say could threaten more than 300,000 jobs.
