CHARLESTON, W.Va. – The West Virginia Manufacturers Association is optimistic about public education in the Mountain State’s following full legislative passage of a comprehensive reform package.

Charleston, W.Va. – “West Virginia manufacturers stand firmly with natural gas and coal, while advocating further development of renewables, and for that matter nuclear power. All play a role in energizing America,” said Rebecca McPhail, president of the West Virginia Manufacturers Association. “Michael Bloomberg’s attempt to attack fossil fuels is misguided absent any reasonable thought as to what will replace them. The renewables that Bloomberg champions are by their nature intermittent. The stability of fossil fuels is needed for the foreseeable future to provide the energy necessary to power our homes, fuel our cars, and manufacture the products that we all use.”
