The Washington Examiner reported:

Senate votes to kill Obama coal rules

The Senate passed a resolution repealing regulations on the coal industry that were issued issued by the Obama administration in its eleventh hour.

The resolution passed, 54-45, one day after the House approved its own resolution of disapproval. The measure now will be sent to President Trump, who is expected to sign it. The resolution helps to fulfill part of Trump’s pledge to help coal miners get out from under the weight of increased regulation on their industry.

In killing the Environmental Protection Agency’s last-minute Stream Protection Rule, the Republican leadership called it a rushed regulation that blindsided states with unnecessary and burdensome rules for coal mining.

Coal country is going to be so much better off under President Trump than they were under Obama.

Folks who have been suffering for years are about to finally see some light at the end of the tunnel.

It’s about time, isn’t it?
