NPR to air series on delinquent mine safety fines; first show is at 4 p.m. (ET) today
Beginning at 4 p.m. (ET) today NPR will begin airing a series on delinquent mine safety fines as part of its show All Things Considered, NPR's Howard Berkes said in an email to The Rural Blog. "We’ve documented what happens at mines that get away with not paying millions in safety fines while they’re delinquent, most for years, some for decades," Berkes writes. Additional shows will air on Thursday and Friday morning on All Things Considered.
