Coal Residuals Reuse and Management Act
Congressman David McKinley (R-WV) has introduced a dangerously weak bill for “regulating” coal ash disposal that would defy logic by allowing States to continue operating every leak-prone and high hazard toxic coal ash dump without requiring basic safeguards and virtually blocking EPA from stepping in to protect communities.
Passage of this bill would endanger the health and safety of thousands of communities, fail to stimulate coal ash recycling, and disrupt the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) public rulemaking process that has been underway for over two years and has attracted a record 455,000 comments.
Congress must vote NO on McKinley’s H.R. 2273 “Coal Residuals Reuse and Management Act of 2011.” Visit www.senate.gov to find out how to contact your Senators today!
