WV House Delays Vote on Bill that Would Set Up Mutual Insurance Company to Aid Mine Operators with $50M in Taxpayer Money

Charleston Gazette-Mail – The West Virginia House of Delegates on Thursday delayed a vote on a bill that would set up a mining mutual insurance company with $50 million in taxpayer money to provide alternative bonding for coal mine operators. Read the full article.

The House postponed action one day on Senate Bill 1, three days after a public hearing on the bill drew opposition from nearly all speakers.

SB 1’s lead sponsor, Senate President Craig Blair, R-Berkeley, has argued that the bill would be a pivotal step toward protecting the state’s Special Reclamation Fund from further financial strain as the coal industry declines.
