New Interior Department Secretary Ryan Zinke is hanging the “Open for Business” sign on energy rich federal lands, just his latest repeal of Obama-era restrictions.

In approving a $22 million coal lease on the Greens Hollow tract in central Utah, Zinke said that other deals will be cut in hopes of putting people back to work.

 ”The United States has more coal than any other nation on earth, and we are lucky to be at a time in our history that we have the technology available to responsibly mine coal and return our land to equal or better quality after,” said Zinke.
