Organizing for an Illinois Coal Severance Tax

10 May, 2016 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm

How Could Illinois Benefit from a Coal Severance Tax?

Join Pam and Lan Richart as they talk with members of Citizens Against Longwall Mining about the benefits of a coal severance tax for communities such as Hillsboro, Illinois.

Montgomery County Farm Bureau
May 10, 2016, 7pm
102 North Main Street
Hillsboro, Illinois, 62409

Hillsboro is home to Chris Cline’s Deer Run Mine.  The coal processing plant is next to a hospital and doctors’ offices, and near a day care center, nursing home, and school.  Longwall mining has subsided farmland and roads, and two coal slurry impoundments pose a potential threat to the community.
