Ohio is the nation’s 10th largest producer of coal. Coal produces 86% of Ohio’s electricity. So the Obama EPA’s coal regulations are kind of a big deal to Ohio, which by the way is a swing state.

A senator from the state could be expected to be up on what’s going on in Congress regarding the EPA and its anti-coal activities. But according to Phil Kerpen,  don’t ask Democrat Sen. Sherrod Brown about it. He doesn’t know.

This morning I had an opportunity to discuss the Obama administration’s War on Coal with Joel Riley on WTVN on in Columbus, Ohio.  No state is being hit harder by forced closures of coal plants than Ohio is, as last week’s PJM auction showed.  I ended the interview with Joel by pointing out that Senator Sherry Brown will soon be put on the record on the War on Coal when he votes on S.J.Res 37, Senator Jim Inhofe’s resolution to overturn the most costly anti-coal regulation known as Utility MACT.

Joel said he has Brown scheduled for an interview this morning too, and promised to ask him about it.  When he asked him about how he would vote on S.J.Res. 37, Brown said: “I don’t know what is it from the number.”

Bloggers, talk show hosts and blog readers know more about what’s going on in Congress than the fine folks we’re all paying to actually consider and vote on things in Congress.
