Mine Co. Had 57 Safety Violations in March - The Daily Beast

Regarding the mine fire that recently killed a number of people in West Virginia: "Massey incurred 57 safety infractions just last month, including for refusing to develop a new ventilation plan. ABC News adds that the Massey subsidiary that operated the Upper Big Branch Mine, where the blast occurred, 'was fighting many of the steepest fines, or simply refusing to pay them.'”

I wonder how the Tea Party feels now. "Deregulation is the answer!" :(
