Latest Action: 10/30/2017 – Received in the Senate and referred to the Committee on Energy and Natural Resources. (All Actions)

About: Gardner has shown time and again that he will try and fight anything that gets in the way of profits for coal executives – even if it means sacrificing the health of the families and communities in Kentucky. Throughout his career he has shown nothing but contempt for science-based clean air and water protections for working people, and dutifully pandered to corporate polluters instead of the advice of doctors and public health professionals.
