Owner Fighting To Save Coal Industry

The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports that “Robert Murray has taken his fight for the survival of the U.S. coal industry — an industry that he believes will have room for only one other company besides his — to court.”  

“’We’re under attack for total elimination of the use of coal, the mining of coal, coal mining jobs’ and those that depend on them, Mr. Murray said in an interview last week. ‘It’s no question that the regulatory rampage of the Obama administration has accelerated and that has resulted in more litigation against the government.’”  

“Murray Energy, the nation’s largest privately held underground mining company, is leading the charge in eight lawsuits against various federal agencies.”
