Opposes HB 119

To the Editor:

Be the Good Samaritan. Let your Representatives Keith Hall, T. Edmonds, and Ancel Smith know that you are opposed to HB 119 (BR306). We — many people and organizations — banded together and worked so hard two years ago to get a bill passed to increase the number of emergency medical technicians to two, after one miner needlessly bled to death and left behind a widow and child. So why would legislators introduce a bill now reducing the required EMTs at a site? Whose interest are our Representatives taking up for? We have depended on coal and miners for many decades; we should be honoring and protecting them, not leaving them “beside the road”.
