U.S. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell says he'll fight a proposal to eliminate a 52-year-old federal agency that seeks to create jobs.  McConnell told WYMT-TV Saturday that he's opposed to the proposal to do away with the Appalachian Regional Commission, which is contained in President Donald Trump's budget for Fiscal 2018.  In fact, McConnell said, "We are not going to allow any cuts" to the commission.
