Coalition of conservation groups sue to stop mine expansion near Bryce Canyon NP

Two months after the Trump administration allowed a coal mine not far from Bryce Canyon National Park in Utah to expand, a lawsuit was filed on grounds the expansion plan wasn't rigorously analyzed for its impact on the environment.

The Interior Department in mid-February approved the Alton Coal Co.'s operations at the Coal Hollow Mine, which opened in 2010, to expand to nearly 3,500 acres roughly ten miles west of Bryce Canyon.
