g secretary: Cancel oil, gas leases on sacred land


Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack says an oil and gas lease in the Badger-Two Medicine area of the Rocky Mountain Front should be canceled, a decision welcomed by the Blackfeet Tribe and environmental groups but criticized by an attorney for the developer.

Vilsack made the recommendation in support of canceling the controversial Hall Creek natural gas exploration lease in a letter he sent Friday to Sally Jewell, secretary of the Interior Department.

The Interior Department is expected to make the final decision by Nov. 23.
