CHARLESTON, W.Va. (AP) - U.S. Sen. Joe Manchin is encouraging West Virginia residents to speak out on new pollution limits.

The West Virginia Democrat is directing state residents to the Federal Register to voice their concerns regarding the Environmental Protection Agency’s proposed limits on carbon dioxide emissions from coal-fired plants.

Manchin has been an outspoken critic of the new rules. He argues more effort should focus on developing so-called clean coal power plants.
