Mine safety is now a priority after the deaths of 14 West Virginia coal miners in two accidents this month.
West Virginia's governor and it s congressional delegation called for a major overhaul of state and federal mine safety laws.
Both the National Mining Association and United Mine Workers of America support the press for change.
A spokesperson for one of the groups say its time to make mining safer even though major improvements have been made in the last 15 years.
The other association says congress and state legislatures need to make sure current regulations are strictly enforced.
