Dear Governor Kaine:
We, the residents and allies of Virginia’s coalfield communities urge you to use all the power and influence at your command to change the way strip mining occurs in Virginia by mandating
1) That there be no strip mining or coal traffic after 10 PM or before 6 AM;
2) That there be no blasting within 1,500 feet of any structure; and
3) A complete abolition of mountaintop removal and all other forms of steep-slope strip mining.
Finally, we invite you to join us in a flyover over southwestern Virginia to see the horrible destruction we live with every day.
