Nick Rahall (W.Va.), the top Democrat on the panel, cited the West Virginia case in his support of the bill. Mingo Logan Coal Co.’s Spruce Fork permit was at issue.

“The message to the EPA in this bill is plain and simple: you cannot continue to churn out regulation upon regulation without regard for their effect on our economy and the jobs of our citizens,” Rahall said. “This bill is a wrench in the gears of EPA’s regulatory perpetual motion machine. But the provisions in this legislation are only temporary, and I’ll continue to fight to pass permanent solutions.”
