President George W. Bush greets Anna McCloy, wife of miner Randal McCloy, during the signing of S. 2803, The MINER Act, in the Dwight D. Eisenhower Executive Office Building Thursday, June 15, 2006. Sen. Johnny Isakson, R-Ga., greets Randal McCloy. "This year alone, accidents have taken the lives of 33 miners in our country," said President Bush. "Just last month, five miners were killed in a mine explosion in Harlan County, Kentucky. And in January, Americans watched and prayed -- a lot of Americans prayed -- with the people of West Virginia for the 13 miners that were trapped underground by the explosion in the Sago mine. Only one man came out, and he's with us today -- Randal McCloy, and his wife, Anna. And we welcome you all." White House photo by Eric Draper
