Virginia has an abundance of natural resources that are profitable to our state, and we must work to make those energy sources cleaner. I was proud to support Dominion’s Wise County coal plant that made this state-of-the-art power a reality. This plant shows that we can always utilize our coal resources in a cleaner way. While some would seek to eliminate coal entirely, and others would seek to weaken emission regulations at the cost of public health and safety, this plant shows that we can find a middle ground.
• As Senator, I will be supportive of clean coal technology that is both environmentally and business friendly.
