Federal Mining Agency Releases Final Safety Regulations

PIKEVILLE, Ky. (AP) - The federal mine safety agency has
published a final rule requiring mine operators to have more
emergency breathing devices, better evacuation training and a
quicker response during accidents.
The rules were finalized after the U-S Mine Safety and Health
Administration held a series of public hearings on a set of
temporary, yet stringent, mine safety regulations. The government
adopted the temporary rules after January accidents at the Sago
Mine killed 12 and the Aracoma Alma Number One Mine killed two in
West Virginia.
