WASHINGTON D.C. - Senator Jay Rockefeller reintroduces a bill to the Senate this week that he hopes will better protect miners.  The proposal would increase enforcement of safety measures in the mines, hold repeat offenders more accountable, protect miners who speak out about violations and limit their exposure to black lung disease.  Rockefeller says that although progress has been made, there is still much work to be done.
