Foresight still talking with creditors * St. Louis-based Foresight Energy extended talks with creditors as it has many times since December, as it seeks to restructure more than $1.2 billion in debt. The mining company, which specializes in highly productive Illinois longwall coal mines, raised on Tuesday the prospect of a Chapter 11 bankruptcy filing if it couldn't reach a deal with lenders. A Delaware court ruled in in December that there was an event of default when Ohio coal miner Murray Energy bought a large stake in Foresight, giving its creditors the right to early repayment.

Roberts vowed to keep fighting as the deadline looms for Vermont's law which requires labels on food products containing GMOs to take effect.
