WASHINGTON (WV News) — The United Mine Workers of America supports Sen. Joe Manchin’s energy permitting reform bill, according to a statement released Thursday.

The organization is backing the Energy Independence and Security Act and approves of its inclusion in a continuing resolution that must be passed before the end of the month to avert a partial government shutdown, said UMWA President Cecil Roberts.
