FIRST ON FOX: The Western Energy Alliance, a fossil fuel trade group, is planning to appeal a federal court decision that upheld the Biden administration's oil and gas leasing delays.
The Denver-based group slammed the court's ruling, arguing it allows the federal government to ignore a legal mandate to hold quarterly onshore oil and gas lease sales on public lands. A spokesperson said the group, which represents 200 oil and gas companies in western states, would soon file an appeal in the case and was confident its arguments would hold up.
