    W.Va. senator blocks mine agency nomination - By NANCY ZUCKERBROD, AP Wire
    'MSHA's political leadership seems to have lost sight in recent years that miners' safety and health is that agency's top priority,' Byrd said. 'Until I know that Mr. Stickler will make safety job No. 1 at MSHA, I will not allow his nomination to move forward.'

    Byrd said he wants to learn more about Stickler's views on key issues, including the need for better communications devices and a more aggressive fine structure.
