No Tax Incentives for the Coal Mining Industry in Alabama

This bill will work against its proposed purpose of creating jobs and will continue practices that cannot last. This bill is designed to create and secure jobs in the mining industry, but the mining industry is actually reducing jobs according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics (2008-2018). This bill will also reduce the likelihood that companies already engaged in mining would invest in energy alternatives that will actually create jobs. This bill creates or continues risks to the health of the workers and the people and children of our state. Our future is not in mining; it is in innovation and development of sustainable practices- sustaining our resources. This myopic bill is an affront to our children's future and implies an indifference in securing resources for them to have for their children-in the hopes of promoting jobs that are actually declining.

      Coal and other fossil fuels are not sustainable - if we do not wean our economy off of them the results will be devastating to the economy and deadly to tens and possibly hundreds of millions of human beings.!

      It doesn't take a genius to see that our world is going to pieces largely due to our expansive use of fossil fuels. It also doesn't take a genius to realize the solution lies in renewable energy. By giving Big Coal tax incentives, and loose regulation and major subsidization, we are working AWAY from the solution. We are the problem.

      Would prefer to add tax benefits to more productive habits rather than coal mining.
