"I am very excited about the opportunity to appear before Members of the U.S. House of Representatives and speak to them about the contribution that West Virginia coal mining and coal jobs have on West Virginia's economy and what it contributes to our nation," Roberts said. "I hope to make it very clear that the EPA's 'War on Coal' is hurting our economy and preventing job creation in West Virginia."
