Hundreds of coal miners held a rally at the state capital.
The miners are upset about a bill that would end the process of mountain top removal. It's called the stream saver bill.
The practice of mountain top removal involves using explosives to remove rock on mountains. The debris, or overburden, is then pushed into a nearby valley or hollow.
Opponents say the practice contaminates the environment.
The stream-saver bill was killed in a committee, but could be resurrected.
The miners say this bill would eliminate hundreds of jobs in Kentucky.
Nearly 2000 miners showed up for the rally, making this one of the biggest rallies in Frankfort in recent years.
