Tell Congress: clean up coal mining’s toxic legacy

The legacy of coal mining pollution in Pennsylvania is one of the worst culprits of water and land contamination in the state. In fact, over 5,500 miles of Pennsylvania streams have been polluted by legacy mining pollution, and over 280,000 acres of land remain toxic and dangerous from past mining activity.

Luckily, there are two proposals in Congress that will direct much-needed funding to clean up and restore these sites, helping cleanup contaminated water and remediate contaminated land. They're HR 1733 and HR1734, the RECLAIM Act and the 2021 amendments to the Surface Mining & Reclamation Act.. Ask your congressperson to support them today.

Subject: Support House Resolution 1733 & 1734 to clean up mining pollution
