West Virginia Intrastate Coal and Use Act to save energy states from federal overregulation
Sponsored by Dels. Howell and Canterbury along with Sen. Sypolt, et al., HB2214/SB56 (the “Intrastate Coal and Use Act”) establishes that the environmental regulation of coal and certain coal products mined and used within the state is exclusively regulated by the West Virginia Department of Environmental Protection and is not subject to federal interstate commerce regulations.
States that would benefit from adopting the Intrastate Coal and Use Act include top 20 coal producing states (WY, KY, PA, MT, TX, IN, IL, ND, OH, CO, VA, NM, AL, UT, AZ, MO, MS, LA, MD).
