The Montana Land Board is now accepting comments on the bid they have received to lease publicly owned coal adjacent to the Signal Peak mine north of Billings. This lease will add an additional 640 acres of land slated for coal mining to the currently active Bull Mountain mine. If the Land Board approves this lease, it will increase carbon emissions into our atmosphere, increase air and water pollution associated with mining and burning coal, and impact the agricultural economy of the Bull Mountain region.
Take action today! Please let the Montana Land Board know that you are opposed to this misguided proposal to lease this publicly owned coal. The deadline for comments is Tuesday, September 4.
Tell the Montana Land Board to stop the dirty coal giveaway and reject the Signal peak proposal!
