The increase in construction of natural gas power plants in Ohio is putting the industry on track to replace coal as the dominant source of electricity in the state.

A coalition of environmental groups is challenging Wayne National Forest's agreement to lease rights to federally-owned coal under more than 430 acres in eastern Ohio.

Coal interests that a veteran Ohio environmental regulator says contributed to his forced resignation have donated 50 thousand dollars to Republican Governor John Kasich since he took office.
