WASHINGTON, DC (February 3, 2017)– The congressional action this week to strike down the “Stream Protection Rule” issued December 19, 2016 by the Department of the Interior’s Office of Surface Mining Reclamation and Enforcement is a welcome step in the right direction for the federal government and for coal. The swift action recognizes the severe flaws in a regulation that would needlessly restrict access to our nation’s abundant coal reserves, increase mining costs, erode federal and state tax revenues, and result in the loss of high numbers of well-paying jobs.

WASHINGTON, DC (February 17, 2017) – Oklahoma Attorney General Scott Pruitt was confirmed today as the new Chief Administrator of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency. The American Coal Council welcomes the confirmation of Mr. Pruitt.
In his capacity as Oklahoma AG, Scott Pruitt was a leader in challenging unwarranted regulation and fought against overreach by federal agencies.”
The members of the American Coal Council (ACC) and the Coal Trading Association (CTA) approved the combination of the two associations effective February 13, 2017. The combined organization will operate under the existing ACC name and organizational structure.
In the future, coal trading matters will be addressed by a new ACC Coal Trading Committee, and coal trading events and information will be available here on the ACC website.
