Has the EPA put heavy restrictions on mountain top removal mining?

    The EPA has “clarified” and strengthened the requirements and restrictions for mountain top removal mining. Getting permits is more difficult than it was and transparency of who gets permits now means that companies are publically being shown to be getting these permits. The restrictions don’t necessarily seem to be any greater but being able to make language clearer so that there is more validation in rejecting permits is one step as is strengthening some requirements.
