U.S. Representatives Cynthia Lummis, Wyoming, and Denny Rehbrg, Montana, both big supporters of Powder River Basin coal production, earned the backing of bipartisan members of Congress in a letter to the Army Corps of Engineers and the Department of the Interior, urging them to reject calls of an unprecedented expansion of environmental reviews for coal exports.

Lummis says that the EPA's request, which appears to be an attempt to block coal exports, is the latest salvo in the Administration's war on coal.

The letter, dated June 21, was authored by Lummis and Rehberg, and signed by 56 bipartisan members of the House of Representatives, including 4 Committee Chairmen.
