Chairman Hastings Invitation Letter to Secretary Salazar and Director Pizarchik to Testify on Status of Coal Regulation Rewrite and Complying With Subpoenas for Documents


WASHINGTON, D.C., July 10, 2012 -

Dear Secretary Salazar and Director Pizarchik:

The Committee will hold an oversight hearing on July 19, 2012 to examine 1) the status of the proposed Stream Protection Rule rewrite and the lawsuit settlement agreement entered into on March 19, 2010 by the Department of the Interior (“Department”) and the Office of Surface Mining Reclamation and Enforcement (“OSM”) to complete the rewrite of the rule by last month; and 2) the failure of the Department to comply with the official Congressional subpoenas for documents on this proposed new coal production regulation, which is calculated to cause thousands of lost jobs and economic harm to over twenty states.  This letter serves as an official invitation to provide testimony and answer questions at this hearing.
