Wildlife Society Challenges Fast Track For Coal Plants In Mid-Atlantic Corridor

HARRISBURG (CN) - The U.S. Department of Energy violated a slew of federal laws by designating the Mid-Atlantic Area National Interest Electric Corridor, which will allow it to "fast track" environmentally devastating coal-powered electric plants and transmission lines on private and public lands in eight states and the District of Columbia, including 15 national wildlife refuges and 215 parks, state preserves or recreation areas, home to at least 20 threatened or endangered species, the National Wildlife Society and others claim in Federal Court. See complaint.
