THE PUEBLO CHIEFTAIN

Elizabeth Russell, who works on Kerber Creek and other mine cleanup projects for Trout Unlimited, said the legislation also would likely free up funding from government agencies and other organizations who might have shied away from doing so because of the liability concern.

“We’re keeping our fingers crossed,” she said.

The bill, titled the “Good Samaritan Cleanup of Abandoned Hardrock Mines Act” is in the Senate Committee on Environment and Public Works.
