Feds reconsider Navajo power line decision
By Felicia Fonseca
Flagstaff, Arizona (AP)
The U.S. Bureau of Land Management is reconsidering a decision on a right-of-way easement for an electrical transmission line that is expected to carry energy from the Navajo Nation to areas across the Southwest.
The federal agency granted the easement for a 3.4-mile stretch of the line near Shiprock , N.M. , in September. A group of environmentalists later appealed, saying the bureau relied on an outdated environmental analysis in issuing its decision and that the analysis should include both the transmission line and a proposed coal-fired power plant because the two projects would go hand in hand.
