Fightin' against the feds

Blank, Michelle

High Country News;5/28/2007, Vol. 39 Issue 10, p9
The author focuses on Mike Noel, a state representative in Utah. Prior to such position, Noel worked as an analyst for the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) in 1996. His analysis has caused the U.S. President Bill Clinton to approve a proposed coal mine on southern Utah's Kaiparowits Plateau, which had caused a battle between the BLM and the environmental groups Grand Canyon Trust and the Southern Utah Wilderness Alliance. Growing up in a nomadic life of a military family, Noel is found to be unafraid of conflict, by keeping his principle to stand for what he believes is right.
