CHAPMANVILLE — On Tues., May 6 from 11:30 a.m.-2 p.m. the West Virginia Coal Forum and the Logan County Chamber of Commerce will partner to conduct a meeting at the Logan Country Club in Chapmanville to discuss the potential impacts EPA’s proposed New Source Performance Standards will have on the coal industry, the state and the nation.

A variety of regional experts and policy leaders will speak at the event, and a buffet lunch will be served for those in attendance. An agenda will be distributed once finalized.

The public is encouraged to attend, especially stakeholders in West Virginia’s mining economy – business leaders, association representatives, local legislators and policy leaders.
