Biden Halt on Public Land Lease Sales Puts HD Mountains Drilling Proposal in Limbo

Mark Duggan
Natural gas equipment and homes share the fields of the Pine River Valley east of Bayfield, Colorado.

The Biden Administration is putting the brakes on new oil and gas leases on public lands. The move is being met with cheers from conservation groups and legal threats from the fossil fuels industry. Reporter Mark Duggan of KSUT Public Radio looks at what it means for one large drilling proposal in the mountains of southern Colorado.

This story was produced as part of a collaborative project reporting on the impacts of fossil fuels, coordinated by the Rocky Mountain Community Radio Coalition.
