Tell Congress to Extend the Black Lung Fund
Coal miners suffering with black lung have lost half of the excise tax funded by coal companies that was intended for their care. Tell your legislator we need to reinstate the excise tax.
Tell Congress to pass the STREAM Act
Acid mine drainage is one of the most visible and costly impacts of coal mining, turning Appalachian waterways rust orange with dangerous pollution, and threatening the health of people and wildlife. Remediation of this pollution requires long-term treatment facilities, and in turn, long-term funding.
Tell Congress to let states use their infrastructure funding for acid mine drainage treatment!
