Rockefeller Statement on Patriot Coal Bankruptcy

Statement

By:
Date:
Location: Washington, DC

Senator Jay Rockefeller today released the following statement after Patriot Coal asked a federal bankruptcy judge to shed its obligations under its existing contract with the United Mine Workers of America:

"Patriot's decision is deeply disappointing, and incredibly unjust. These retirees worked day and night, risking their lives and their health, under a pledge that is now broken. Passing my bill to protect these union miners' health benefits and pensions is now more than just the right thing to do - it's imperative."
