New coalition touts clean coal in primary states, supports emissions reduction legislation
With all eyes on Pennsylvania and the remaining primary states, clean coal has emerged as an issue of focus in several key states. Throughout primary season, Americans for Balanced Energy Choices (ABEC) has tried to influence voters in coal states through a $40 million ad campaign touting clean coal. ABEC is now part of a new, larger group, the American Coalition for Clean Coal Electricity (ACCCE). During today's OnPoint, Stephen Miller, president of ACCCE and the former president of ABEC, outlines the goals of the new coalition and discusses his group's ad strategy for this year's elections. Miller says ACCCE will support some form of an emissions reduction policy but expresses concern over several provisions of the Lieberman-Warner climate bill.
