Summary as introduced:

Coal mine safety.  Requires the operator of a coal mine to submit (i) a map of the mine to the Chief of the Division of Mines of the Department of Mines, Minerals and Energy before producing coal and (ii) any revisions that show directional changes whenever mining projections deviate more than 600 feet from the approved mine plan. The bill also allows instructors that are certified by the Board of Coal Mining Examiners to determine the fitness of a miner to detect explosive gas before the miner is put in charge of cutting, loading, drilling, continuous miner, or timbering machines. This bill is identical to SB 330.
