Methane drilling in dispute

Photo by Pat Hill

Last Friday, the Bridger Canyon Planning and Zoning Commiss ion voted 5-0 to deny n request for a coalbed methane dri lling permit to the J.M. Huber Corporation in the Bozeman Pass area.

Local planning commission denies methane drilling permit

KDxponent Wrjtetat Hill Opponents of coalbed meth­

ane drilling in the Bozeman Pass area won the first round in the fight last Friday, after the Bridger Can­yon Planning and Zoning Commis­sion voted 5-0 to deny a drilling permit to J.M. Huber Corp.

Huber's application for a con­ditional use permit to drill an ex­ploratory well in the Jackson Creek

area, located within the Bridger Canyon Zoning District, was de­nied by the commission after two days of public hearings in Bozeman last week. The corporation has leased the mineral rights to 18,000 acres around Bozeman Pass and chose the Jackson Creek explor­atory well site for "geologic rea­sons," according to Huber geolo­gist George Hampton.

The crowd on hand at the Gallatin County Fairgrounds dur-

ing the final vote on Friday cheered loudly after the commission's unanimous vote to deny the per­mit, but the battle is far from over. The Bridger Canyon Zoning Dis­trict encompasses only 4,000 acres of Huber's mineral rights proper­ties. Land that the corporation leases outside the district falls un­der the jurisdiction of the Montana

· Board of Oil and Gas Conserva­tion, which gave their okay for the Jackson Creek site last year.

"There's a lot of gas in that coal," Hampton told commis­sioners on Thursday, when Huber presented its case for drill­ing. Old coal mines, co*ke kilns, and slag piles in evidence throughout the Bozeman Pass area are mute testimony to Huber's estimation that up to a half-trillion cubic feet of methane

As an Exponent writer I wish to apologize to all of its readers and staff, as well as all readers of The University a/Wisconsin-Madison and its staff. Due to a lack of com­munication between an out­side source and myself, the story "Enormous Lost Bra Spurs Investigation" was in­advertently added to the Exponent's "spoof" issue, known as T he Excrement. The story originally appeared in The Onion in the Nov. 22-28, 2001 issue. The Editor and staff of the Exponent were unaware of its existence prior to the date of Excre­ment printing.

"I'm not really sure why it's been like that," says Erickson, a sophom*ore who was Clark's backup throughout rhe 2000-01 season. "With two point guards, it 's not supposed to work this well. Both of us arc pretty ver­satile. We borh played the one

and the two in high school, so we both have experience at both posirions. \V./e\·e lived together, we kno\\' each orher, we know how the other one plays, we find each orher, and we\ e al\\ ays wanted to play togerher. Tlus is a lot of fun for us, and we're rak­ing advantage of it."

nor to expect funding for any new or ex-panded programs, said Chuck Swysgood, budget director for Gov. Judy Martz.

He urged board members to agree on priorities for overall education funding, raking into account the needs of both pub­lic schools and higher education in a single budget request.

"I;'s your responsibility to

give us some help in doing this," Swysgood said, noting the consti­tution requires the board ro de­velop a unified budget for edu­cation for each rwo-year budget period. "We need to know what's

Regardless of the what bud­get work the board does, money will be hard ro find when law­makers next convene a year from now, Swysgood said.

While the stare ended the last budget year with a $173 million surplus, a third of char will be used up because the last Legislarure spent $57 million mo re rhan what the state ex­pects in revenue over the next 18 months, he said.

About $50 million is off­limits because it comes from one- rime sources and cannot be used for ongoing government programs, and another $50 mil­lion is needed w just cover growing costs of current pro­grams, Swysgood said.

Of the remaining $16 million. about $10 million is needed to pay costs of last summer's fires and in­creased state security following the

epr. 11 terrorist attacks, he said. Economic growth is expected

to be slow, bur could provide up to an additional $54 million, ac­cording to Swysgood. Possible floods or fires this year, and a ris­ing number of welfare and Med­icaid cases could cur into that pot of money, he said.
