Blankenship backs Manchin’s suit against EPA

West Virginia Gov. Joe Manchin’s new lawsuit against the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency has gotten some support from Don Blankenship’s Massey Energy. Here’s what Massey had to say about the suit:

Massey Energy applauds Governor Manchin’s decision to combat the EPA’s stance on mining permits, which threatens West Virginia jobs and jeopardizes the livelihoods of working families throughout Central Appalachia. It is encouraging to see an elected official recognize the important role played by our coal miners, who work hard to meet the Nation’s energy needs.
