coal

For the first time in 30 years, the Department of the Interior has launched a comprehensive review to identify and evaluate potential reforms to the federal coal program. Public input will help inform the size and scope of Interior’s Programmatic Environmental Impact Statement (PEIS). This public workshop gathered legal, policy, and economic experts to analyze key issues for this review, including: how to ensure that American taxpayers earn “fair market value” for the use of their public resources; how to account for the environmental and public health impacts of coal production; and how to identify and analyze viable alternatives so that policymakers and the public can make informed decisions about the future of federal coal.
