Funds to fix abandoned mines drying up

Pittsburgh Live just posted an article regarding the current state of the Abandoned Mine Land Fund which provides not only federal money (provided by tax on coal production to the coal operators....not taxes from you and me) to repair abandoned mine land, but it also provides health care coverage to union coal mining retirees and their widows that have been orphaned by bankrupt and defunct coal companies. If this mess is not straightend up by June more than an estimated 50,000 miners will lose their health care and states will be forced to pay for the reclamation work that millionaire coal operators should be paying for.
