Hopes Rise With New RECLAIM Act

Over the past 6 years residents of coal-impacted communities and supporters across the country have urged Congress to pass the RECLAIM Act, which would invest $1 billion on an accelerated clean up of land and water harmed by abandoned mines, and provide a catalyst for economic development on those sites. This radio report highlights Congressional testimony in support of the RECLAIM Act from Eric Dixon, Appalachian Citizens’ Law Center in Kentucky, and Pennsylvania Rep. Matt Cartwright just prior to the bill’s reintroduction in the U.S. House of Representatives on April 9, 2019.
