A Pennsylvania House Representative has decided to remove a proposed ban on crypto mining from a bill that aims to regulate the energy consumption of the sector. The bill was approved by the Pennsylvania House Environmental Resources and Energy Committee with a narrow margin of votes. The decision to remove the ban came after pressure from Democratic Party leaders, who were influenced by building trade labor unions that opposed environmental policies. The Representative expressed concern that going against the unions would risk the Democratic majority in the House. Instead of the ban, the revised bill now requires an impact study on miner operations and imposes new reporting requirements. Crypto miners in Pennsylvania will need to submit information on their mining sites, energy sources, emissions reports, and energy and water consumption. The move to remove the ban comes at a time when miners are seeking alternative energy sources to reduce costs, with some companies utilizing coal-burning power plants and nuclear power for their operations.
