NMA Responds to Reimposition of Coal Leasing Moratorium

WASHINGTON, D.C. – The National Mining Association (NMA) today issued the following statement from Rich Nolan, NMA President & CEO, on the coal moratorium ruling:

“We will be appealing this ruling. This is a deeply disappointing decision with energy-driven inflation, energy affordability and energy security top concerns for Americans. Denying access to affordable, secure energy during an energy affordability crisis is deeply troubling. Americans need the energy affordability and energy security buttressed by coal production on federal lands and so do our allies struggling to transition away from Russian energy. The reimposition of this moratorium couldn’t come at a worse time.”
