A U.S. senator said Tuesday he will ask fellow lawmakers to halt coal sales on federal lands in the West after a senior Obama administration official declined to suspend the troubled government program.
Two recent congressional investigations point to the loss of millions of dollars to the public due to flaws in the way the Bureau of Land Management manages federal coal, including large holdings in the Powder River Basin of Montana and Wyoming.
Hoping to placate critics of a proposed three-way coal swap involving the Northern Cheyenne Tribe, U.S. Sen. Max Baucus is offering new legislation to make the deal more balanced.
