The Pennsylvania State House has adopted a resolution to urge the United States Postal Service to issue a coal miners postage stamp.

The Coal Miners Stamp Committee of Northeastern Pennsylvania and the state-formed Citizen's Stamp Advisory Committee have agreed to begin a nationwide campaign to educate and inform the American public on the stamp project.

Although the Resolution was clearly aimed to support Pennsylvania's historic coal heritage, the text of the document focused on the continuing riskiness of coal production and its most recent tragedy in West Virgina.
