Impact of a federal coal lease program reset

Report summary

The Obama administration has recently placed a moratorium on new federal coal leases in order to review and make changes to the current leasing process. The Powder River Basin representing nearly 50% of US coal production, is primarily located on Federal lands. Any reset of the federal coal leasing program would have a major impact on this major coal producing region.
