The federal Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) appears unmoved by growing calls from Montana officials and political candidates to hold listening sessions on new regulations for coal-fired power plants in Montana. The EPA has planned hearings in 11 large urban centers across the country, but none in places like Montana where jobs are heavily dependent upon coal production.
Republican Attorney General Tim Fox was officially calling on the EPA to schedule a session in Montana, saying the EPA shouldnt be afraid of listening to viewpoints they wont hear in New York City.
On Monday, Ryan Zinke, the newly-declared GOP candidate for Montanas lone U.S. House seat, also released a statement calling on the EPA to hold a listening session in Montana.
Montana holds twenty-five percent of the nations recoverable coal reserves, and coal produces fifty-one percent of the states energy, stated Zinke. The regulations that the EPA imposed will prevent new plants from being built, close current plants, and put thousands of hard-working Montanans out of work.
Zinke ended his statement saying, We deserve to be heard!
