Oppose Cap & TAX

If you care about the soaring price of energy that will happen under the mis-named Climate Bill, then you need to sign the

National Mining Association petition.

Urge the Senate to reject Waxman-Markey Climate Bill. Sign NMA's New Petition.

Members of Congress will soon return to Washington, D.C., following the end of the August congressional district work period and could quickly begin work on Senate climate legislation similar to the Waxman-Markey (H.R. 2454) bill that narrowly passed the House in June.

If signed into law, the Waxman-Markey bill will destroy tens of thousands of high-paying mining jobs and drive-up energy prices, while doing little to actually help the environment.

To help mining community supporters express their opposition to the Waxman-Markey bill, NMA has recently launched a new online petition.

Show your support for America's mining community by signing the petition and urge friends, co-workers and family to join you in adding their names to the thousands who have contacted Congress and stood up for mining.
