Coal is the life blood of Southwest Virginia’s economy, especially in the 38th District. Many of the region’s industries and jobs rely on its extraction. Ben Chafin has a proven record fighting for the coal industry. Ben continues to sponsor legislation to fight against the EPA’s effort to kill the coal industry through over-regulation. In the Senate, Ben fought tirelessly to extend the coal employment tax credit. Ben will continue to work in Richmond to protect coal and grow other Southwest industries like natural gas.
