Environmental coalition alleges state environmental agency not protecting the environment

“A new coalition of 18 environmental groups is rallying together with a message highly critical of state environmental regulators in the West Virginia coalfields.

The CARE, or Citizens Action for Real Enforcement, campaign claims that the West Virginia Department of Environmental Protection is “failing to protect its citizens from chronic pollution, environmental degradation, human suffering and costs resulting from inadequate regulation of coal extraction by the state government.””  It is asking that the Federal OSM take over the regulation of mining in West Virginia.”
