State Officials Meet with Peabody

House Speaker Jody Richards, Senate President David Williams and Governor Fletcher will meet with Peabody Energy’s chief executive officer next week.

The conference will concern a $3 billion-plant to convert coal to synthetic natural gas that the company is planning.

The Lexington Herald-Leader reports that Richards requested the closed meeting on July 25, 2007. Possibly in Bowling Green or Louisville.

The governor said in a statement the night of July 18, that he is “happy to meet with Peabody executives again, along with any members of the legislature Peabody deems appropriate.”
