N.C.'s sharp right turn threatens transit in 2 booming metro areas

CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- The blueprint for one of the most ambitious mass transit networks ever envisioned in the Southeast calls for some 72 miles of rail lines, rapid bus routes and even a streetcar here in North Carolina's largest metro area. But eight years after its formal adoption, the transit plan is still short about $5 billion of what's needed to for it reach fruition, according to one estimate.


Nev. ranchers plan coast-to-coast horseback ride to protest 'tyranny'

When a Nevada county commissioner in May led a horseback ride more than 300 miles across northern Nevada to protest the Bureau of Land Management's grazing closures on public lands, it got the agency's attention. Now he's planning a coast-to-coast horseback ride next month, dubbed the "Cowboy Express," to protest land-use restrictions imposed by BLM's Battle Mountain, Nev., District Manager Doug Furtado.


Big wins elusive for EPA in Clean Water Act showdowns

For U.S. EPA at the Supreme Court, it's been the best of times -- and the worst. In Clean Air Act cases, EPA is on a roll. The high court last term upheld a major EPA program for air pollution that drifts across state lines. It also barely trimmed a permitting program for greenhouse gases, leaving intact most of EPA's first round of climate regulations. But it's a different story when the Clean Water Act is in play.


Energy boom shapes Texas' lone competitive House race

PECOS, Texas -- Fueled by the oil and gas boom, this town of 9,000 is one of the fastest-growing in the nation. On the outskirts of Pecos, the seat of Reeves County and the energy-producing hub of the 23rd District, oil and gas rigs operate around the clock, lending the air a strong chemical odor. Main Street is lined with new hotels, banks and a Wal-Mart store. But not everyone is thrilled with the rapid pace of development. It is here, and in towns throughout a sprawling West Texas district, where freshman Rep. Pete Gallego (D) will try to fend off a Republican challenger in the state's only competitive House race.


'Major investment cycle' and rapidly changing U.S. energy markets pose fresh challenges for FERC -- Chairman LaFleur

Prudent. That word might best describe Cheryl LaFleur's approach to her job -- and answering questions about it -- as chairman of the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission. While nursing coffee from her "lucky" mug with the inscription "sleep is for the weak," LaFleur recently sat down in her office with EnergyWire to discuss some of the challenges facing the five-person commission.
