This bill would continue the current contribution to the coal natural resources account, which funds the coal board which distributes the money to coal communities, at 5.8% until 2023 instead of letting it decrease to 2.9% this year. This will allow the coal board to continue to put money away to help coal communities adjust to the decline in the coal industry and the energy transition.
HB 292 passed out of the House and was transmitted to the Senate on February 14.
