More Info

Our team focuses on messaging to Members of Congress in coal states, including pathways for transitioning away from burning coal,  like the New Day for the Coal Fields proposal created by CCL coal country volunteers on how to help former coal miners and former coal mining communities rebound from the loss of coal mining, the RECLAIM Act to use mine reclamation projects for redevelopment, and the Senate's bipartisan American Energy Innovation bill which consolidates many research and technical assistance efforts.  We keep tabs on issues and legislation of interest to MOC's and mining communities, like Carbon Capture, and the financing of pension and health benefits, including for Black Lung.

Our conference calls regularly include members from IL, KY, MT, PA, VA, WV, WY. We'd like to hear more from people in other coal states.
