      another new and different pos t-mining land-use application is presented to the attendees and published in the proceedings. The bibliography for this book Author: Jon Burley. The Surface Mining Control and Reclamation Act (SMCRA) stands alone among environmental statutes because of its dual, competing goals: Congress enacted SMCRA to promote coal mining to provide the nation with an important source of fuel, while also minimizing mining's environmental impacts. – As the nation marks the 40th anniversary of the federal strip mine law, coal field residents are urging the federal government to make good on promises to reclaim mined land. Today marks 40 years since the signing of the Surface Mining Control and Reclamation Act (SMCRA), which governs coal mining and reclamation operations nationwide.
