Bucshon invites Obama to tour coal mine

EVANSVILLE, IN (WFIE) - Congressman Larry Bucshon will be one of the local dignitaries greeting President Obama when he lands in Evansville on Friday.

Bucshon says he will deliver a letter to the President containing an invitation to tour a Hoosier coal mine. Bucshon says:

"I'm happy to see that the President is set to visit Indiana. Like many Hoosiers, I look forward to hearing the President address the many concerns we have regarding the future of the manufacturing and energy sectors that are critical to our state. I'm hopeful he will address the proposed EPA regulations that will devastate our coal industry, hamper our manufacturers, and increase energy costs on all Hoosiers. Friday, I intend to personally invite the President and the EPA to join me down in a coal mine so that they can hear directly from the hardworking miners here in Indiana."
