Earlier today, Hal Quinn, president and CEO of the National Mining Association, released the following statement expressing his congratulations to President Obama on his reelection and emphasizing the importance of strengthening our mining sector for job creation and economic growth.

“The National Mining Association (NMA) extends its congratulations to President Obama upon his reelection. NMA remains committed to working with the administration and the Congress on an ‘all of the above’ energy strategy that includes coal, our most abundant energy resource, and on policies that support a dependable supply of domestic minerals production to meet the nation’s needs.


“With world-class mineral and coal resources, technology and skilled workers, U.S. mining can be a valuable partner in creating a strong domestic economy while also providing the energy and minerals required to stimulate economic growth. NMA will continue to pursue public policies that provide reliable, affordable energy and a dependable supply of minerals that are vital to a stronger, more resilient economy and the employment opportunities Americans need and deserve.”
