FRANKFORT, Ky. – "My heartfelt prayers are with the families of miners Michael Carter and Justin Travis in the roof collapse at Dotiki mine in western Kentucky. I know the special bond shared by Kentucky’s coal miners and I join with them on behalf of Kentuckians across the Commonwealth in praying for their friends and families.

"I agree with Gov. Beshear that we must press forward with the task ahead – that being fully investigating what caused this accident and determining ways to avoid such accidents in the future."
