President Trump wants to reverse several Obama-era regulations designed to destroy American coal. One of the rules to be rescinded is the Coal Valuation Rule that sought to stop coal mining on federal land and keep coal in the ground.
That coal, which delivers over one billion dollars a year in royalty revenue, delivers on average 40 cents of every dollar sold in local, state and federal taxes and fees to the American people, making it one of the highest taxed commodities in the world. If the rule goes into effect, thousands of jobs will be destroyed, Powder River Basin states will lose billions in economic activity and electricity costs for consumers will increase.
