MSHA Issues Fewer Citations

The federal Mine Safety and Health Administration says, in November, it issued 250 citations and orders at 22 mines singled out for special inspections. The number of orders and citations decreased from 380 issued to 19 mines in October. MSHA inspected 12 coal mines and 10 mines located in 13 states from Pennsylvania to California that produce metal and other materials. MSHA director Joe Main says the numbers show special "impact inspections" are reducing violations. The practice started after the April 5th explosion that killed 29 miners at the Upper Big Branch Mine in West Virginia.
