(Washington, DC)  --  West Virginians are rallying for the coal industry.  Many from the state joined a “Rally for American Energy Jobs” yesterday in Washington with the goal to show support for the industry.  The West Virginia Coal Association says the Obama administration’s policies are crippling coal production as well as jobs in the manufacturing, electric, and construction and agriculture fields.  Thousands were on hand for the demonstration at the Capitol and Senator Manchin spoke.
