The President’s Fiscal Year 2016 discretionary budget request for OSMRE supports $160.5 million, an increase of $10.4 million over the 2015 enacted level. As part of an Administration initiative to revitalize coalfield communities, the budget also requests an accelerated disbursement of $1 billion, $200 million for 5 years, from the Abandoned Mine Reclamation Fund, to assist communities most severely impacted by dangerous abandoned coal mine lands and coal mine water pollution in a manner that facilitates economic revitalization on reclaimed lands and restored waterways. The POWER + Plan also includes proposals for other Federal agencies to contribute to a multiagency effort to invest in workers and jobs, address important legacy costs in coal country, and drive development of coal technology.
