MSHA Talking More -- But Will It Share Internal Findings?

MSHa has admitted it had ongoing concerns with the Sago Mine before the explosion. The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette has a good summary.

One unanswered question: has MSHA pledged to release the report of its announced investigation into its own pre-disaster activities?

Ellen Smith of Legal Publication Services has commented:
In the agency’s last internal review involving Cody Mining, MSHA would only state that it found “deficiencies” in agency actions and the problems were corrected. MSHA would not go on record or give a written report to the public stating exactly what those deficiencies were, or what changes were made at the agency to correct those deficiencies. I would have more confidence in the agency if this information would be made available to the public.
