Daines Announces Over $200K to Support Montana Mine Safety

U.S. SENATE — U.S. Senator Steve Daines today announced that $213,341 will be granted to the Montana Department of Labor & Industry to support safety training for Montana miners.

“Proper training is critical for the safety of hardworking Montana miners. I’m glad to see the Montana Department of Labor & Industry receive these resources to support the health and safety of miners across the Treasure State,” Daines said. 

Daines helped secure this funding through the U.S. Department of Labor’s Mine Safety and Health Administration in December 2020.
