Capito Statement on Miners Provisions in the Continuing Resolution

Washington, D.C. – U.S. Senator Shelley Moore Capito (R-W.Va.) issued the following statement regarding the short-term provisions to address miners’ health benefits in the continuing resolution.

“I’m disappointed that the full Miners Protection Act to address health and pensions benefits for our miners was not included in the continuing resolution that was released tonight. While the short-term, four-month patch will prevent our miners from losing their health care benefits in just a few weeks, we have more work to do. I will continue fighting until a long-term solution is reached.”
