The article reports that two Wyoming environmental conservation groups are urging the state's governor to not allocate industrial revenue bonds for a local power plant unless construction plans incorporate a cleaner-coal burning design. The Wyoming chapter of the Sierra Club and the Wyoming Conservation Voters have distributed close to 2,000 postcards to their members to sign and send to governor Dave Freudenthal urging him to use the bond allocation as leverage to get North American Power Group to alter its plan for the Two Elk power plant near Wright, Wyoming.
