Sierra Club Denounces Correll Nomination

But during Correll’s years at the agency, MSHA withdrew or delayed final action on eighteen mine-safety rules, including the establishment of on-site mine-rescue teams, caches of oxygen and breathing devices for trapped miners and flame-resistant conveyor belts. Price speculated that had these rules been instated, the lives of the fourteen miners killed in the recent Alma Mine and West Virginia Sago accidents may have been saved.

John Correll is Bush’s pick to direct the US Department of Interior’s Office of Surface Mining (OSM). I’m continually astonished at how this administration picks the candidate most likely to fail in doing the job set before him. Read the rest at the New Standard.
