Thank you to all of our generous members who have been very supportive during the past few months.
As mentioned in April, several of our members, along with Stand Up To Coal, filed petitions for an administrative review of the Bulldog Mine permit issued by IDNR. These members of Stand Up to Coal have spent many hours working on their petitions and answering interrogatories from the mine developer. Lawyers from both sides are working with an IDNR administrative law judge to chart out the plan for the administrative review.
Sometime in November, we anticipate that we will have an opportunity for members of the public to travel to Springfield and support our efforts during a hearing. We hope you can join us and we’ll provide an update when we know more.
In the meantime, please continue to provide support as we pay our legal experts helping us chart these difficult waters.
