Illinois coal production numbers on the rise

Illinois coal producers say their businesses are hot. According to data from the U.S. Energy Information Association Illinois coal miners enjoyed their best production year in the nearly two-decades last year. The state's 47-million-tons of coal produced was an increase of 24-percent over 2011. Illinois' coal production bucks the national trend, which saw a near four-percent decline in 2012.
