Sago Hearings On, Off Again

As investigators start interviews in the Sago Mine disaster, a Senate Appropriations committee hearing scheduled on Sago and mine safety in general for this Thursday was suddenly cancelled this morning, according to sources in MSHA and on the Hill.

I was told that the order for cancellation came from the majority side.

It's not known when separate public investigative hearings promised by the Department of Labor will begin. But the Governor's spokeswoman is estimating March.
