Since 2000, the rate of #blacklung among veteran coal miners has doubled across the nation. In the midst of this epidemic, black lung benefits for nearly 19,000 miners and their dependents are being threatened in Congress. Congress must take action now!

The RECLAIM Act (HR 1731) is an opportunity to create jobs, empower local communities, and build long-term opportunities for working families in communities where coal has historically been the backbone of the local economy. Members of Congress must pass the bill now!

I am proud to be part of a broad coalition standing up for coal miners who have been left behind. Congress must save the Black Lung Disability Trust Fund and pass the RECLAIM Act (HR 1731) to help communities hit hardest by the coal industry’s downturn. Take action now!
