Environmentalists File an Appeal Challenging Coal Mining Permit

Environmentalists have filed an appeal challenging Peabody Coal’s mining permit in northern Arizona. 

At the same time a new economic impact study shows Arizona, as well as the Navajo and Hopi Tribes, stand to lose millions of dollars and hundreds of jobs in the future unless agreements can be reached to keep the Navajo Generating Station and Peabody Coal operating.  New federal regulations could shut the plant down.  From the Fronteras Changing America Desk, Laurel Morales reports.
