Weekend Protests Target Cap and Trade

Opponents of pending federal "cap and trade" legislation rallied over the weekend both in Beckley, as The Register-Herald reports, and at the state Capitol, according to MetroNews (with audio) and The Charleston Gazette.

The Charleston newspaper also has a companion article scrutinizing the bill's potential impact on coal, while Public Broadcasting reports on a related protest in Morgantown, this one targeting federal health care legislation. With audio.

The Intelligencer of Wheeling, meanwhile, looks at the length of some of these measures pending before Congress.
