"Pennsylvania has the highest number of acres of land and miles of stream in the country in need of reclamation. It's time for Congressional Republicans to stop talking about their support for coal mining communities and start voting for policies that will improve the economy in places like Washington, Westmoreland and Greene counties. Too many coal mining communities have gone far too long without substantial investment, this legislation will change that:" Over the last eight years, the coal industry has undergone a dramatic, decrease in production resulting in a disproportionate impact on communities that have historically relied on the industry for their economic livelihoods. Decreased coal production has led to significant job losses in communities with few other economic opportunities. The RECLAIM Act aims to support the development of new economic and community development opportunities in impacted coal communities. This legislation utilizes $1 billion of existing funds from the Abandoned Mine Reclamation Fund to revitalize coal communities.

I am glad to join~with Communities Act, legislation that my House and Senate coll~agdes would help revitalize the country's manufacturing sector and help create good-paying manufacturing jobs throughout the country. The bill was also introduced in the House by U.S. Congressman David N. Cicilline (D-R.I.), Congressman Tom Reed (R-N.Y.), Congressman Tim Ryan (D-Ohio), and Congresswoman Claudia Tenney (R-N.Y.). The bipaxtisan Made In America Manufacturing Communities Act would codify into law a successful program, the Investing in Manufacturing Communities Partnership (IMCP), started by the Obama Administration, which allows communities around the country to compete to receive preferential consideration for federal economic development funds. 24 communities around the country have already been designated '`Manufacturing Communities" and have received targeted investment and support to make their regions more competitive. The program's future is uncertain without authorizing legislation, but this bipartisan bill would make it permanent so that more communities around the country can compete for this designation. '%Vith eight West Virginia counties participating in the Investing in Manufacturing Communities Partnership, this to introduce legislation that will help strengthen our manufacturing sector and promote needed job growth in West Virginia," said Senator Capito. This legislation encourages a regionally-driven approach to strengthening the manufacturing industry. To compete for funding through this program and earn the "Manufacturing Communities" designation, communities would create regional partnerships with key stakeholders such as local and state economic development officials, local governments, manufacturers, labor organizations, and higher education or other Articles submitted to the Hinton News must reach the office by Thursday noon in order to be considered for publication in the following Tuesday paper.
