President Trump will return to Charleston Tuesday for his sixth visit to West Virginia since taking office and his first to Charleston since May 6, 2016.
The president is expected to go into detail about a new policy aimed at rolling back regulations on carbon dioxide emissions as well as talk about this year’s U.S Senate contest between Senator Joe Manchin and West Virginia Attorney General Patrick Morrisey.
The New York Times reported Saturday the administration’s plan will allow states to decide whether and how to reduce emissions from coal plants. The Environmental Protection Agency will hold a press briefing this morning on the proposal, the Affordable Clean Energy rule.
West Virginia Coal Association president Bill Raney likes the idea of states getting to decide what’s best for them.
Today’s rally is scheduled to begin at 7 p.m.
