Tobash’s PA Jobs and Affordable Energy Bill Sent to Governor
10/22/2012
HARRISBURG – Rep. Mike Tobash’s (R-Schuylkill/Berks) legislation to promote the use of low-cost domestic energy and boost jobs in Pennsylvania now heads to Gov. Tom Corbett’s desk to be signed into law.

House Bill 1813 amends Pennsylvania’s Surface Mining Conservation and Reclamation regulations to provide for the use of Land Reclamation Financial Guarantees (LRFGs) for new and re-mining projects. The bill also codifies the source of funds for Acid Mine Discharges that have been ordered by the courts. House Bill 1813 will help mine reclamation efforts, lower electric generation costs and create jobs.

“It’s been many years since specific legislation in support of developing our anthracite resource has passed the state General Assembly,” said Tobash. “Specifically, it will remove barriers to anthracite coal development and improve Pennsylvania miners’ ability to provide our country with the abundance of affordable energy that exists right under our feet.”

For more information on House Bill 1813, or any other state-related issue, contact Tobash’s office in Schuylkill Haven by calling (570) 385-8235.
