The co-owner of the Crandall Canyon mine now has a subpoena to appear before a Congressional committee.

Robert Murray warned journalists on Aug. 7 about where they get information about what was going on in the Crandall Canyon mine before the disaster. "You want to report the truth, I haven't met many journalists who didn't, but you've got to be careful, in situations like this, who you seek out for the truth," Murray said.

Now the U.S. Senate Appropriations Subcommittee on Labor, Health and Human Services will "seek the truth" from Murray through a subpoena. He's been asked to appear on Dec. 4 to discuss mining and safety procedures at Crandall Canyon.

Murray didn't attend several other hearings, saying he was too sick.
