“As you have seen, I have kept my promise as President,” he told attendees.

“We are putting our coal miners back to work. We have ended the war on beautiful, clean coal. We have stopped the EPA intrusion. American coal exports are already up.”

Senator Patricia Rucker, R-Jefferson, and Delegates Roger Hanshaw, R-Clay, and Mark Zatezalo, R-Hancock, were named WVMA Champions of Industry for promoting policies that are conducive to manufacturing.

“The WVMA is pleased to recognize the commitment of our Champions of Industry to the development of policy that fosters an environment of manufacturing growth,” said WVMA President Rebecca McPhail. “Each legislator stood out in their desire to learn about and understand key industry issues, and champion these causes.”

In West Virginia, location is a key selling point for manufacturing companies that want easy access to eastern markets and east coast shipping channels. Yet location means little if roads and bridges are not well maintained or modernized.

West Virginia ranks near the bottom — 46th — for its percentage of structurally deficient bridges. Infrastructure improvements must be made now so we can maintain and grow the manufacturing sector.
