Colloquium: the Impact of Coal on the State Budget

Everyone is invited to join us on selected Friday afternoons at 3:30 p.m. in Crabbe Library Room 201 for a hour of informal, moderated discussion over articles of various topics selected by EKU faculty. Refreshments will be provided by EKU Student Government Association.  Dr. Melissa Fry Kontywill moderate this week’s discussion of The Impact of Coal on the Kentucky State Budget, a recent report she co-authored for the Mountain Association for Community Economic Development:

[A] national dialogue about energy policy and coal is underway, and the impact of that policy on Kentucky and Appalachia is a key part of that discussion.  Too often missing, however, is factual research and analysis of the benefits and costs of coal in those places to enrich the decision making.
