This week is the last chance for Congress to pass the Miners Protection Act, which will continue to provide the healthcare benefits and pensions for retired miners made vulnerable by corporate bankruptcies and the financial crisis.
The United States government made a promise to mineworkers in 1947 guaranteeing their healthcare and retirement due to the dangerous and essential nature of their work. If Congress fails to act by April 28, more than 22,000 retired coal miners will lose their healthcare benefits and livelihoods.
Please call 1-855-976-9914 now, and tell your Representative to pass the Miners Protection Act! If your Representative is already a cosponsor of the bill, please be sure to thank him or her for standing with workers.
The following members of Congress from New Jersey are currently listed as cosponsors: Donald Norcross (D-01), Frank LoBiondo (R-02), Chris Smith (R-04), Leonard Lance (R-07), and Bonnie Watson Coleman (D-12). If your representative is not a cosponsor, please urge them to support the bill and stand up for the health care and livelihoods of mining families.
