NMA Applauds Senate Passage of Bipartisan Mining Schools Act

WASHINGTON, D.C. – The National Mining Association applauds and urges the U.S. House of Representatives to support the Mining Schools Act of 2023, job-creating legislation championed by Senate Energy and Natural Resources Committee Ranking Member John Barrasso (R-Wyo.) and Chairman Joe Manchin (I-W.Va.).

“American mining – and the American miners at its heart – is the foundation of our nation’s economy,” said Rich Nolan, NMA president and CEO. “By supporting the next generation of miners, the Mining Schools Act is a direct investment in secure U.S. supply chains, American ingenuity, and high-paying, community-supporting jobs for the future. We appreciate Sen. Barrasso’s leadership to date and urge the House to join the Senate in advancing this important legislation.”
