- NMA’s Quinn: Americans look forward to “a fresh start, common sense approaches to move the economy forward to benefit all Americans”
November 5, 2014
National Mining Association (NMA) President and CEO Hal Quinn issued the following statement on the results of the Nov. 4 midterm elections:
“As the president said, his ‘policies were on the ballot’ in this midterm election. The American people have registered their disapproval and are now looking for a fresh start with common sense approaches that can move the economy forward to benefit all Americans.
“Using the executive pen to wrap vital industries in more red tape, increase their energy costs and jeopardize middle class jobs clearly does not resonate with the American public. Over the past six years, we’ve seen a costly and aggressive regulatory agenda that has slowed America’s still-unsteady economic recovery, stagnating wages and eliminating jobs essential to economic growth.
“NMA looks forward to working with all members in the new 114th U.S. Congress toward balanced policies that will strengthen our economy and provide Americans a more secure economic future.”
