Quick Take On Mine Safety Hearings
Last Wednesday, the head of the House Subcommittee on Education and the Workforce, Charles W. Norwood (R-Georgia), ended hearings half an hour early, before a second round of witness questioning, additionally snubbing a group of miners and family members who had come to speak.
The subcommittee did listen to statements from two Mine Safety and Health Administration (MSHA) officials, as well as representatives from United Mine Workers of America (UMWA) union and the National Mining Association, an industry group. [emphasis mine]
