Ohio Coal Association statement on today’s
OSM stream buffer zone regulation announcement

Monday, July 27, 2015

“Today’s stream buffer zone regulation announced by OSM is just the latest in radical overreach that is designed to destroy coal communities. It’s unfortunate the unelected bureaucrats at OSM have ignored the concerns of state regulators and Congress in order to promote a continued radical anti-coal agenda. OSM also has ignored NEPA requirements in order to develop the rule in secret, which is why it should be no surprise that 9 out of 10 States have withdrawn as cooperating agencies. We urge Congress to continue to hold OSM accountable for these job killing regulations.”

Christian R. Palich
President, Ohio Coal Association
