GRAND JUNCTION, Colo. (AP) - The Interior Department is planning a public meeting in Grand Junction as it prepares to complete a comprehensive review of its federal coal program.

The Daily Sentinel reports (https://bit.ly/1SaOQQN ) that on Thursday the Interior Department announced that Grand Junction will host one of six meetings across the country that will solicit input to help inform the review.

Detailed information about the dates, times and locations of those meetings have not yet been released, but they are planned for May and June and will also be held in Wyoming, Tennessee, Pennsylvania, Salt Lake City and Seattle.

The meetings come after Interior Secretary Sally Jewell in January announced a moratorium on new coal leasing while the department completes the review.
