OPINION: Capito Supports WV Coal at CPAC

From a Release by WV GOP

CHARLESTON, W.Va. - Yesterday, Congresswoman Shelley Moore Capito used her time at the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) in Washington, DC to advocate for West Virginia coal and natural gas. 

"Congresswoman Capito is a true leader and exceptional spokesperson for West Virginia," said Conrad Lucas, Chairman of the West Virginia Republican Party.  "For our nation to have a truly effective, comprehensive energy policy, West Virginia coal and natural gas must be part of the long term solution.  Any policy that ignores our natural resources would damage our economy and viability as a nation.  We proudly applaud Congresswoman Capito for taking a strong stand for West Virginia jobs."

Congresswoman Capito stated in a release, "This was a great opportunity to share on the national stage the importance of West Virginia energy sources to jobs, the economy and energy security.   And also to point out the hindrances Washington, D.C. and the Obama Administration places on energy development.  The current energy policies coming from this Administration are picking winners and losers in which I wholeheartedly disagree with.  I will continue to fight for a real "all the above policy" that includes coal and natural gas."


CPAC is an annual conference featuring conservative leaders across the nation to discuss important issues.   In addition to Congresswoman Capito, other speakers this week include Governor Mitt Romney and Congressman Paul Ryan.  Also, West Virginia Delegate John B. McCuskey (R-Kanawha) is featured at CPAC as a "Top Rising Young Conservative."
