Recently in Washington, legislation was passed to get rid of a rule that hurt coal mining in Central Illinois and across the country. Former President Barack Obama passed a rule, called the Stream Buffer Rule that focused more on clean energy rather than coal mining. Congressman Rodney Davis didn't like that for his district because it hurt the area for job opportunities, and when the chance was given to make a change, he didn't pass it up.
Davis said it's more important to focus on burning the energy we have in cleaner ways and developing that so America can be energy independent and not have to rely on other countries to help the US fuel itself.
Congressman Davis appeared on the NEWSTALK WTIM Morning Show.
