We Won!

Most of you have probably heard the good news by now.  The  U.S. District Court has rejected the Office of Surface Mining’s conclusion that Usibelli’s 25-year-old permit for its Wishbone Hill coal strip mine was valid.  The case now goes back to OSM, which should issue an order invalidating the permit. If Usibelli  ever wants to mine at Wishbone Hill, it will need to submit a new permit and if that were to happen, we at CMC will be there to evaluate whether the health and safety of the community are protected.  All your support and hard work made this possible.  Congratulate yourselves!  Here is a link to the decision and an ADN article: http://www.adn.com/business-economy/energy/2016/07/08/federal-judge-rules-against-wishbone-hill-mine-prospect/
