Beth Bingman: Support POWER+ Plan, Help SW Virginia

Beth Bingman, a long time community educator living in Dungannon, VA, speaks out on why she thinks state and federal legislators should be advocating for President Obama’s proposed POWER+ Plan, which, among other things, would allocate $1 billion to coalfield communities to give people employment in the cleaning up of abandoned coal mine sites. (Her commentary originally appeared in the Roanoke Times; read it here.) The City of Norton and Wise County Supervisors have passed resolutions in support of the POWER+ Plan, as well as a number of local governments in Kentucky.
