Senator Balderson addresses members of the Senate Insurance, Commerce, & Labor Committee.
Columbus - 
State Senator Troy Balderson (R - Zanesville) presented sponsor testimony today before the Senate Insurance, Commerce & Labor Committee regarding House Bill 207, which will establish the first week of April as "Ohio Coal Miner's Week." Prior to joining the Senate, Balderson sponsored the legislation as a member of the Ohio House. "Coal mining currently provides over fifty percent of all energy produced in the United States and accounts for 95 percent of the nation's fossil energy reserves," Balderson said. "Without coal, and without Ohio's coal miners, our economic engine would grind to a halt. This industry has had a long and storied presence in Ohio and deserves proper recognition." The bill, once approved by the committee, will move to the Senate Floor for a final vote.
Senator Balderson represents the 20th Senate District of Ohio, which is made up of Athens, Coshocton, Guernsey, Meigs, Monroe, Morgan, Muskingum, Noble, and Washington Counties
