Pittsburgh, PA (SpeculatingStocks) - The coal industry has almost been driven to extinction due to Obama-era initiatives to push clean energy and restrict the coal industry through various regulations. Another one of those regulations on the coal industry is expected to fall next week. Green regulations such as the federal coal mining ban and carbon emission cuts forced on states are expected to end next week.

It was one of President Trump's campaign promises to help coal country. President Trump won heavily coal state West Virginia with 67.9% of the vote and won the coal-related states of Pennsylvania and Ohio as well.

The extremely unfavorable environment for coal companies is starting to do a 180 and could even become extremely favorable with much of the EPA budget possibly on the chopping block.
