BISMARCK — Two North Dakota organizations are threatening to sue if Public Service Commissioners Kevin Cramer and Brian Kalk don’t remove themselves from making decisions about the South Heart Coal mining permit application.

BISMARCK (AP) — State regulators said Friday they plan to take more time to review plans to open a new coal mine in southwestern North Dakota after a technical review found hundreds of deficiencies in the application.
BISMARCK (AP) — State regulators said Tuesday that the permit application for a coal mine in southwestern North Dakota was deficient and they returned the document to developers for a second time requesting more information on reclamation, financing, mining facilities and water impacts.
