Lawmakers and industry leaders gathered before dozens of attendees to address coal, climate change and federal regulations at the West Virginia Coal — 2015 & Beyond event June 9 at the Embassy Suites Hotel in Charleston.

The event was hosted by the West Virginia Coal Forum, which is an organization that represents both labor and management in the coal industry.

The program is the first in a serious of educational and informational events that aim to bring attention to the potential impact of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency's proposed Clean Power Plan.
