Reid Gardner Coal Plant: Energy Resource or Health Hazard to Local Tribe
Reid Gardner Coal Plant: Energy Resource or Health Hazard to Local Tribe

AIR DATE: May 8, 2012

The Reid Gardner Coal Plant has been running for 50 years on the Moapa Paiute reservation.  But the local tribe says the yellow smoke is causing health problems, from nose bleeds to asthma and heart disease.  It wants the coal plant to regulate its emissions.  But NV Energy, which oversees the plant, disagrees.  The tribe recent held a protest walk, and the Environmental Protection Agency held a hearing last week.  So what's going on with the coal plant?  Will it make changes, and what will the plant and the tribe have to do to move collaboratively forward?
