Join June 13 Webinar To Learn How You Can Help Urge Congress To RECLAIM Abandoned Mine Lands

The Eastern PA Coalition for Abandoned Mine Reclamation is urging individuals and groups interested in seeing Congress do more to fund local mine reclamation projects to attend a national webinar on June 13 at 1:00 or 7:00.
EPCAMR and many other groups are promoting the RECLAIM initiative now pending in Congress as H.R. 1731.
Pennsylvania would receive about $253 million over the next 5 years to accelerate the pace of abandoned mine reclamation projects that lead to job creation if the RECLAIM Act becomes law.
It is critical to point out this is money that is already in the federal Abandoned Mine Reclamation Fund just sitting there waiting to be spent.  Also critical is the fact the per ton fee on coal that supports this Fund will expire in 2021 if not reauthorized.
The webinar will provide an update on the status of the RECLAIM proposal and how grassroots organizing can help move the legislation forward.
