Mining advocates sue over ban near canyon
FLAGSTAFF — The National Mining Association and the Nuclear Energy Institute are suing the federal government over a 20-year ban on new hard rock mining claims near the Grand Canyon.
Interior Secretary Kenneth L. Salazar announced the prohibition last month that covers more than a million acres rich in high-grade uranium ore reserves.
The Federal Land Policy and Management Act gives the Interior secretary the ability to withdraw 5,000 or more acres but not for longer than 20 years without congressional approval.
The lawsuit filed Monday in federal court in Arizona asks a judge to declare the act unconstitutional. The mining advocacy groups also contend that Mr. Salazar’s office relied on old, inaccurate information for an environmental analysis.
A spokesman for the Interior Department declined to comment, citing pending litigation.
FedEx truck hits Amish buggy; adults, children hurt
MASSENA — Authorities say two young Amish children are in critical condition after their horse-drawn buggy was rear-ended by a FedEx truck on a northern New York road.
State police say the accident occurred around 2:30 p.m. Monday on Route 37 in the town of Massena, on the Canadian border in St. Lawrence County. Troopers say two women each had two of their children in the buggy when it was struck from behind by the truck.
Police say two 3-year-old children are in critical condition Tuesday at a Syracuse hospital. One of the mothers is at the same hospital being treated for a possible spinal injury. Troopers say the other woman and two children are believed to have been treated and released.
The truck driver and co-worker weren’t injured.
