Policy Resolution 2017-06: Financial Assurance Regulation

CATEGORY:
Mining

Western Governors' Association Policy Resolution 2017-06: Reclamation of western mines and facilities managed by other industries is needed primarily to protect adjacent waters. It is therefore appropriate and consistent with Congressional intent to recognize the states’ primary role in regulating impact of facility reclamation – including associated financial assurance requirements. Western Governors believe that states have financial assurance regulatory programs in place that are working well and they should not be preempted or duplicated by any EPA program. Read, download the Resolution
