The U.S. Department of the Interior is revisiting the current program that allows coal companies to lease federal land asking:

“Are taxpayers and local communities getting a fair return from these resources? How can we make the program more transparent and more competitive? How do we manage the program in a way that is consistent with our climate change objectives?”

RP Siegel takes a closer look at the program, the issues at play, and the responses these statements are receiving from leading environmental orgnizations.
