Senate to hold hearings on Utah mine collapse.

When Congress returns, the Senate Appropriations subcommittee that oversees labor issues will hold hearings on the collapse in a Utah mine that caused six coal miners to go missing. The committee wants mine co-owner Bob Murray to answer questions about the safety of the mine and “whether mining should have been conducted at Crandall Canyon at all because of the potential for collapses.”

UPDATE: Huffington Post notes that, after 17 days of silence, CNN finally offered a critical look into Murray’s record.
