REIMAGINE APPALACHIA RESPONDS TO NEWS OF RECONCILIATION DEAL


APPALACHIA –  In response to news of a deal on reconciliation between Senators Shumer and Manchin, Campaign Manager Dana Kuhnline issued the following statement:

“We’re cautiously optimistic that this deal is good for Appalachia–we need the tools to create new jobs, address the climate crisis, and support struggling Appalachian communities. Appalachia has been hit hard both by climate change impacts and global energy shifts. Coal helped Appalachia power the country, and now we need to look to the future by putting our people back to work generating clean, homegrown energy. 

Reconciliation offers a once-in-a-generation chance to deliver shared prosperity to Appalachia – and the entire United States. We’re ready to do what it takes to rebuild our communities and jumpstart the brighter future Appalachia deserves.”
