Environmentalists say judge's ruling supports view that Kentucky is failing to monitor coal mines
A judge's blunt finding that Kentucky doesn't have enough regulators or money to properly monitor a coal company should help make the case for more funding for such work, environmentalists said. Franklin Circuit Judge Phillip J.

Terry McAuliffe is unhappy – with Democrats
PETERSBURG, Va. – Don’t be fooled by the expansive grin, outstretched arms and the booming baritone with which Terry McAuliffe greets throngs of churchgoers here: The governor of Virginia is frustrated. Not with his job in Richmond — McAuliffe says he has loved every second of it. The only problem with being governor, he laments, is that sometimes he has to sleep. If powerful Republicans have stymied McAuliffe’s legislative agenda, he takes it in stride. On his overarching goal — economic development — the governor pronounces his administration “as wildly successful as anything I could want to do.” Politico.com

EPA: Texas Coal plants should spend $2B to cut emissions
FORT WORTH, Texas — Federal regulators said Monday that the largest coal-fired power plants in Texas should invest more than $2 billion in new technology to reduce sulfur dioxide emissions, but the state's coal regulator said the plan would increase costs for consumers while doing little for the environment. The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency issued a report rejecting most of a 2009 plan from the state to reduce haze in national parks and other federally protected land. The state had proposed retrofitting some plants with air-filtering equipment, work that has since been done, and extending a timeline to return parks to their natural state. Star-Telegram.com
