Coal Association President Resigns

Louisville, KY – The head of a Kentucky coal lobbying organization is planning to resign at the end of the year. Kentucky Coal Association Governmental Affairs Director David Moss says a successor has not yet been named to replace Bill Caylor, the group's current president. Caylor's been the group's president since 2001 and has worked for the coal association for more than 30 years. Caylor made headlines in July when he agreed in Fayette County District Court to enter a diversion program after pleading guilty to violating an emergency protective order his wife had against him. Caylor has told the Associated Press he did not threaten his wife but knew the protective order was in place and shouldn't have approached her.
