The BlueGreen Alliance released the following statement from Interim Co-Executive Director Mike Williams:
“As our nation moves toward a clean energy future, it is critical that no worker or community gets left behind. The RECLAIM Act will give impacted communities the tools needed to create good jobs reclaiming abandoned mine land, while generating lasting economic opportunity. Today’s action is a step in the right direction and we hope to see this momentum continue.
“We are pleased to see movement on this important bill and urge quick passage through Congress.”
