The BlueGreen Alliance released the following statement from Interim Co-Executive Director Mike Williams:
“The RECLAIM Act will create good-paying jobs by reclaiming abandoned mine land and providing economic opportunity in areas that are struggling right now. It is critical that as our nation moves toward a clean energy economy, we make sure that no worker or community is left behind. The RECLAIM Act is an important step toward a better future for all.
“We thank Representatives Cartwright, Rogers, Thompson, and Beyer for their leadership and urge quick passage of this important bill.”
