Interstate Mining Compact Commission
For decades, states have effectively regulated mining impacts in accordance with federal and state laws. These laws strike a balance between society's needs for the goods and energy produced from solid minerals and the need for protection of people and the environment.
The IMCC is a multi-state governmental organization supporting the natural resource and related environmental protection and mine safety and health interests of its member states.
