  • Desert Rock Challenge - NM appeals of planned coal plant’s air permit

    Alburquerque, New Mexico (AP)

    The state attorney general’s office has filed a brief appealing an air permit for a planned coal-fired power plant on the Navajo Nation in northwestern New Mexico.

    The state filed the brief Oct. 2 with the Washington, D.C.- based Environmental Appeals Board, which can remand the permit if it agrees with any of New Mexico’s arguments, the attorney general’s office said in a news release.
