Congressman Alex X. Mooney (WV-02) Co-Sponsors Coal Miner Pension Fix Legislation

Washington, DC - Today, Congressman Alex Mooney (WV-02) cosponsored the American Miners’ Pension Act, which will ensure that retired coal miners receive the pension benefits they earned. He released the following statement in reaction to the introduction of the bill:

“More than 22,000 coal miners and their families rely on pension benefits to provide for their families. I am proud to support legislation that will provide certainty to these hard-working men and women.

West Virginia coal miners risked their lives to power our entire country; we must act now to maintain the benefits they were promised. I am pleased to see this bi-partisan legislation introduced today that will support our coal miners, said Rep. Mooney.
