Protecting Tennessee’s Scenic Vistas

The Volunteer State once again has an opportunity to stop mountaintop removal coal mining from destroying more beloved mountains. The Tennessee Scenic Vistas Protection Act, sponsored by Rep. Gloria Johnson (D-Knoxville) in the state House and Sen. Lowe Finney (D-Jackson) in the state Senate, would prohibit high-elevation surface mining techniques such as mountaintop removal. Appalachian Voices Tennessee Coordinator Ann League and allies across the state are asking legislators to stand up for Tennessee’s mountains.
