Thompson Challenges Obama Administration’s Rewrite of Coal Regulation.

New federal rule could cost 220,000 jobs in the Appalachia region alone.

WASHINGTON, D.C.– The House Natural Resources Committee yesterday held an oversight hearing on the status of the Obama Administration’s rewrite of a sweeping coal regulation known as the Stream Buffer Zone Rule, during which U.S. Rep. Glenn ‘GT’ Thompson questioned Joseph Pizarchik, director of Office of Surface Mining Reclamation and Enforcement (OSM), U.S. Department of the Interior (DOI), on the lack of transparency governing of the rulemaking process and the potential for huge economic losses under the new regulation.
“This entire process has lacked transparency and failed to even consider the full impact that this regulation will have upon local economies in Pennsylvania and across the country,” Thompson stated.
For more than two years, the committee has conducted an ongoing investigation into the Obama Administration’s rewrite of the rule. The OSM is the chief federal office in charge of the rule’s rewrite.
The committee released a report on the issue last year, which detailed the rushed and unorthodox rulemaking process at the OSM, including attempts to conceal the rule’s full economic impacts. Specifically, the report found that between 133,441 and 273,227 jobs are at risk as a result of this proposed rule with between 55,120 and 79,870 losses in direct mining jobs. Furthermore, the report found that as many as 220,000 jobs are at risk in the Appalachia region alone as a consequence of the proposed rule.
“The conduct of OSM is emblematic of the Obama Administration’s complete disregard for the health of our economy,” Thompson added.“This White House will stop at no end to bend the rules and assault the coal industry along with the millions of jobs it supports.”
The Interior Department has largely stonewalled the committee’s investigation into the rewrite of the coal regulation and failed to comply with multiple subpoenas for specific documents.
Thompson pressed Pizarchik on the OSM’s “plan for seeking input from state cooperating agencies between now and the time the stream protection rule’s Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) is published for public comment in 2014.”
Pizarchik, the chief officer in charge of the rewrite, which began in 2008, stated he does not believe there have been any contacts during the last year with states or other cooperating agencies.
DOI regulations require that OSM collaborate “to the fullest extent possible” with all cooperating agencies, including states.
“Have the cooperating agencies been provided with the new draft alternatives that OSM is considering?” Thompson added. Pizarchik was unaware of any such communications.
DOI regulations also require that OSM collaborate with cooperating agencies “at the earliest possible time,” so that all stakeholders can evaluate the rule and consider possible alternatives.

Fossil fuel is killing the planet and the people.
There is no such thing as clean coal,lets look for more alternative energy which is out there and cleaner.......

Look at all the companies that went overseas to create that garbage to avoid EPA standards. Let the laid off workers find other work like everyone else is doing.

I want my kids and grandkids enjoy clean air and make it a cleaner planet....coal is nasty and kills 22,000 people a year and causes health problems for another 125,000 mostly the young and elderly.

Shut all the coal burning plants down. Look what happened at Allentown,Pa....all outdated steel mills putting all that poison in the air...that was 40 years ago....it was a great start to eliminate all that poison into the air. Lets keep closing these poison factories down and have clean air and help out the planet at the same time.

God forbid one of your kids or grandkids have to make an emergency trip to the hospital that is powered by coal. You say coal kills 22,000/yr but I wonder how many lives are saved by the energy it creates. You might as well say stop car production too or at least driving them killers on the road. Matter of fact lets all live in a plastic bubble and hope for the best.

61% Expect Health Care in U.S. To Get Worse Over Next Two Years
July 22, 2013
Voters continue to give high marks to the health care they now receive but are more pessimistic than ever about the short-term future of the health care system in this country.
A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that 24% of Likely U.S. Voters now expect the U.S. health care system to get better over the next couple of years. Sixty-one percent (61%) think that system will get worse. That’s up four points from a month ago and up 13 points since February.

Thanks for showing us you are nothing more than a mouthpiece for the failed obama administration. You can't answer one question I posed and even though you're getting screwed over just like the rest of us. You choose to turn a blind eye because you have put all your hope in this charlatan. You are no different than Al Queda members who blindly follow thier false preachers. You could have been excused for voting for him the first time but the voting for him a second time after he was such a miserable failure makes you a selfish parasite and unamerican. It would be nice if people like you who voted for him were the only ones who had to suffer from his failed policies. You are a traitor to your country and should punished as such.
