A bill that would create the Utah Office of Mine Safety passed the Senate on Thursday, the Salt Lake Tribune reports. SB224 would be created at the cost of $250,000, said sponsor, Minority Leader Mike Dmitrich. The office would be located in Carbon County.

Dmitrich said the office would have no enforcement capability but the ability to interact with the Mine Safety and Health Administration (MSHA). It would support mine safety and training and coordinate mine safety efforts.

The bill moves to the House for further debate.

Implosions at the Crandall Canyon mine in Huntingdon, Utah, last August took the lives of six coal miners and three would-be rescuers.
