DescriptionIn a rare break with fellow Republicans, Sen. Wayne Allard said Tuesday that he will oppose proposed mining law changes that critics say would trigger a "fire sale" of public lands.

Environmentalists have expressed serious concerns about a mining provision included in a House of Representatives version of a pending budget bill.
