This bill would allow coal counties to create trust funds to set aside money from their existing budgets (from property tax revenues they receive from coal-fired power plants and mines). These trust funds are to be used as their local economies change with the energy transition.
SB 191 passed out of the House on April 3 and is on its way to the Governor’s office for his signature.
