U.S. Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke on Monday announced he has postponed a second federal oil and gas lease sale planned for March in less than a week in response to local opposition to the possibility of drilling near national parks and monuments.

Zinke took to Twitter to announce he is postponing the March 13 sale of 63,496 acres of federal land for oil and gas leases in tourist town Livingston, Montana, which is a gateway town to Yellowstone National Park.
