U.S. Mining Director Resigns

Robert Uram, director of the U.S. Office of Surface Mining, has resigned. Uram says has accomplished his goal of streamlining the Interior Department agency that enforces federal strip mining laws. He will leave the position Sept. 15.

Industry officials have hailed Uram for making cuts in a bloated bureaucracy, critics say the cuts targeted inspectors rather than the bureaucracy.

Uram, a former mining industry lawyer, also served as an associate solicitor for surface mining in the Carter Administration and has served as director since March 1994.
