SOURCE: NMA | January 28, 2021

Washington, D.C. – The National Mining Association (NMA) issued the following statement from Rich Nolan, President and CEO, on Inauguration Day.

“For more than 200 years, our nation has gathered peacefully on Inauguration Day under the leadership of thoughtful elected officials to witness the swearing in of the President and Vice President. Former presidents of both parties, along with members of Congress, set aside political differences to join in a day of ceremony and celebration that goes beyond any one individual or party, reflecting the significance of seeing the democratic process work as intended.

“January 20, 2021, should be a day of unification and celebration. I offer my most sincere congratulations to President Joe Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris for their historic victory, and join in the calls for a peaceful day in Washington – and across the country – and an orderly transition of power. Americans are better than the violent acts, hateful speech and proliferation of distortions that have marred our recent days. I look forward to working with the new administration and sharing the perspectives and priorities of our great industry, which contributes so much to American life and the U.S. economy.”
