The RECLAIM Act is bipartisan, common sense legislation that accelerates the distribution of $1 billion in already collected fees for projects that clean up abandoned coal mines and lays a foundation for economic development and diversification in impacted regions.

This bill will spur job creation and local business investment through projects to clean up abandoned coal mines, restore wildlife habitat, and redevelop sites for new economic opportunities, but we still need to build a broader, stronger coalition to ensure it passes.
