Oklahoma Sues Federal Agency for Coal Mining Oversight

“The Department of the Interior and other defendants in this case are dead wrong about their decision,” Stitt said in a statement. “They are attempting to unlawfully federalize mines that have been regulated by Oklahoma for almost 40 years by ignoring the clear limitations in the McGirt decision.” Stitt claims that the decision applies only to criminal jurisdiction.

The lawsuit, filed last week in federal court in Oklahoma City, names as defendants U.S. Secretary of the Interior Deb Haaland, the Office of Surface Mining Reclamation and Enforcement and that agency’s acting director, Glenda Owens. The U.S. Department of the Interior notified the state earlier this year it planned to strip Oklahoma of its jurisdiction to regulate surface coal mining within the Muscogee Nation reservation following last year’s U.S. Supreme Court’s McGirt decision, which determined the tribe’s reservation in eastern Oklahoma was never disestablished by Congress. The U.S. Department of the Interior and the Office of Surface Mining Reclamation and Enforcement didn’t immediately respond to a request for comment on the lawsuit.
