Coal plant backers seek extension

Email

Dallas-based North American Coal Corp. spokesman David Straley told The Associated Press that developers will ask for another extension before year's end. Developers still need favorable coal legislation and a clear U.S. energy policy for the $4 billion project to move forward, he said.
