Tribal leaders ask for delay in O&G lease sale for areas near WH-listed Chaco Culture NHP

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) — Tribal leaders are calling on U.S. land managers to put off an upcoming oil and gas lease sale, the latest in an ongoing battle over energy development in a region that's home to a national park and other sites of cultural and historical significance.


The tribes say the federal government is obligated to follow environmental and historic preservation laws when considering whether to allow for oil and gas exploration in northwestern New Mexico. They're concerned about more than two dozen parcels that will be up for bid Thursday.
