A veteran of four different congressional offices has left Capitol Hill in favor of a job with the National Mining Association to head its congressional affairs team.

The trade organization has brought in Justin Prosser as director of congressional affairs amid a ramped up period of regulation for the industry.

President Obama and the Environmental Protection Agency announced last week a plan to reduce carbon emission from power plants by nearly a third by 2030 in an effort to slow climate change.

The National Mining Association has issued staunch criticism of the plan, sponsoring ads that predict a sizeable increase in utility bills and penning editorials in opposition.

Prosser began his career on the Hill in 2006 as an intern for the House Ways and Means Committee before transitioning to Rep. Cathy McMorris Rodgers' (R-Wash.) office as staff assistant.

Prosser spent the next 6 years split between the offices of Sen. John Ensign (R-Nev.) and Rep. Doc Hastings (R-Wash.). He handled a variety of issues for both members, including natural resources for Ensign.
