Resources where it would be scrutinized under the provisions of the Montana Major Facility Siting Act. If certification is granted by the State agency, the proposed action of the State agency would then be subject to voter approval by a Statewide referendum. Montana's 1979 legislature enacted laws that may affect the nonfuel mineral industry; they address taxation, mine reclamation, safety, air quality, water appropriations, and utility siting. As required by law, State agencies responsible for promulgating and administering regulations related to mineral resource recovery, extraction, siting, and processing, conducted hearings throughout the State. The hearings covered air quality, water quality, discharge permits, an environmental impact statement (EIS) on the Troy project, an EIS on a proposed copper-silver mine, a construction permit for Coistrip Units 3 and 4 (700 megawatt coal-fired generating plants), discharge related to solution mining of uranium, water appropriation, and lease applications for minerals on State lands. During the 1978-79 period, the Secretary of the Interior designated 31 schools and universities throughout the country, including the Montana College of Mineral Science and Technology at Butte, as State Mining and Mineral Resources and Research Institutes, enabling them to share $5.4 million under Title III of Public Law 95-87. This law provides for annual allotments to one designated institute in each participating State through fiscal year 1984 and for research and scholarship grants to those institutes. Under the law, the institutes are to establish training programs in mining and minerals extraction and provide scholarships and fellowships. Each institute initially received a basic grant of $270,000 for scholarships and fellowships.
