The Denver Post: Briefs: Probe of Norton’s ties with Shell sought

05/09/2007 03:35:15 AM MDT

ProgressNowAction.org, a Denver-based liberal advocacy group, is calling for a federal investigation of the relationship between former Secretary of the Interior Gale Norton and Royal Dutch Shell’s oil shale operations in northwest Colorado.

The group alleges that Norton may have used her influence at the federal agency to approve Shell’s leases in Colorado, followed by Shell hiring Norton as a general counsel for the company’s “unconventional resources” unit that includes oil shale development.

Norton resigned from Interior in March 2006. Shell was awarded the federal leases in November 2006. Shell hired Norton in December 2006.
