Democrat for Mountain top mining

Across the border, West Virginia governor Joe Manchin sees a place for mountaintop mining - road building.
West Virginia would like to build a four-lane road throughout the mountainous coalfields between Huntington and Bluefield. Years of planning and money pumped in by Senator Robert Byrd have built little bits of the road. They have found a segment where a private company will mine coal and leave behind a road bed for this project.
Is this a good use of mountaintop mining, or must it be stopped all times, at all costs?
