Socio-economic and cultural aspects in portions of Montana, Nebraska, North Dakota, South Dakota, and Wyoming are analyzed. Population models that may result from alternative levels of coal development are presented. The impacts of each alternative on social conditions, shifts in power structures, government revenues, public service facility and funding needs, non-governmental services and labor competition are discussed. Specific problems addressed include revenue needs-tax revenues time gap, juridictional problems of assuring that revenues are returned to impacted areas, housing needs, ability of local governments to cope with problems. Methods of alleviating these are addressed.
