Happy Holidays!

December 23, 2011

The Mat Valley Coalition is celebrating the Holidays a little early this year!  Great news has a way of instilling that holly jolly spirit.

We just learned that the Office of Surface Mining (a federal agency that oversees the AK Department of Natural Resources coal mine project) has agreed that our Citizen Complaint Letter presents valid arguments.

OSM has given DNR 10 days to justify why they have allowed Usibelli to operate without a valid permit since 1996.

While we still don’t know the final outcome of this latest development, it is clear that we are making headway with the powers that be.  Stay tuned for more updates as they develop.

In the meantime, remember we are still collecting those personal stories. This time of year is a great time to express your hopes and wishes for the coming year.  Let Usibelli know we are all hoping for a very merry coal free community!
