Restoring Abandoned Mine Lands, Local Economies, and the Environment
Cleaning up abandoned mines protects public health and safety and creates jobs, especially in communities the mining industry has left behind. On Thursday, March 18, we’re hosting a hearing in the Energy and Mineral Resources Subcommittee on three bills to restore abandoned mines, rebuild local economies and clean up the environment. Our plan will jump-start a cleaner economy and help communities take economic power back from polluters. Watch live here at 12 p.m. Eastern.
