The Senate Coal Caucus serves as a forum through which legislators and industry representatives can collaborate on the needs of the coal industry, focus on the utilization and consumption of coal to significantly reduce consumer demands on foreign fuels and highlight new coal technologies within the industry.

“The coal industry is a major economic player in Pennsylvania and will continue to play a large role in helping the citizens of Pennsylvania manage their energy needs,” Sen. Yaw said.  “Working in a bipartisan manner, the members of the Legislative Coal Caucus can have a significant impact on policy and help the industry and its workers meet future challenges.”
