Tell Congress: It’s Time to RECLAIM Our Mountains

This year we have a unique window of opportunity to help pass a bill that would accelerate the release of $1 billion to reclaim abandoned coal mines in communities impacted by the toxic legacy of coal mining.

The RECLAIM Act supports mountain communities by creating jobs and cleaning up dangerous former mine sites ” and it does it all without using a cent of taxpayer money. The funding would come from the $2.5 billion Abandoned Mine Land Fund currently sitting in Washington.

We just need Congress to release the funds so we can get to work. Contact your legislator today and ask that they support this important bill.
