Jeanie Alderson testifies before U.S. Congress

Jeanie Alderson, Birney rancher and past chair of Northern Plains, testified virtually in front of the U.S. Congress about the need to reform the federal coal program. The hearing came as the Department of Interior explores updates to the federal coal leasing program. Jeanie described the impacts that coal production has on our land, water, climate, and agricultural communities. She urged the Bureau of Land Management to craft coal policies that address climate change in the midst of changing energy markets while creating a just transition for workers and coal-dependent communities.
