Federal oil shale plan gets hearing in Denver

DENVER — Denver-area residents will get a chance to comment on a plan to open nearly 2 million acres of public land in Colorado, Wyoming and Utah to oil shale development.

The Bureau of Land Management plans to hold a meeting on the issue today in Denver.

The agency is holding meetings around the region to discuss efforts to take a fresh look at an oil shale plan the Bush administration released in 2008.

That plan made about 1.9 million acres of public land potentially available for commercial oil shale development and about 431,000 acres available for tar sands leasing and development.
