Senator Puts All Legislative Action On Hold Until Coal Miners’ Healthcare, Pensions Are Secured

Democratic Senator Joe Manchin of West Virgina posted on Instagram that he won’t let coal miners be ignored by Congress:

“Today I announced that I’m putting a hold on all legislative business coming through the Senate until I get assurances that coal miners’ healthcare and pensions will be secured by the end of this year.

I’ll do whatever I can for the miners who have sacrificed so much to provide the energy to power our nation.

These coal miners and their families deserve the peace of mind of knowing their pensions and healthcare – which they’ve paid into and earned – will always be there.”
