H.R. 4248 would extend the collection of coal reclamation fees through 2036. The bill would reauthorize annual payments to states and Indian tribes under the Abandoned Mine Lands (AML) program, which would be made without further appropriation. Under the bill, the Office of Surface Mining Reclamation and Enforcement (OSMRE) would be required to disburse previously sequestered amounts to states and tribes. The bill also would exempt future payments from sequestration. Finally, H.R. 4248 would increase the minimum annual payment that some states receive from $3 million to $5 million.
