Other senior Labor figures share these sentiments and have warned Shorten in shadow cabinet meetings, face-to-face in his office in Canberra, and in phone calls over the past week. The message being given to Shorten is that he is in danger of making himself and Labor look anti-coal and anti-mining.

Over the past few weeks, the Kentucky Coal Association has monitored the movement of House Bill 227 to reform Kentucky's net metering renewable energy subsidy.
