A Senate committee investigating the Crandall Canyon Mine disaster has accused federal safety regulators of not properly double-checking safety reports submitted by Murray Energy prior to last August’s cave-in.

As far as professionals go, they should’ve been thinking of what the [miners’] families would have wanted.
