Washington State rejects proposed coal export terminal

Washington State rejects proposed coal export terminal

The people of Washington have convinced one of the state's most powerful agencies, the Department of Natural Resources, to deny a key approval for the last, largest remaining coal terminal proposal in Longview. The DNR rejected a request to use state-owned land in the Columbia River to build new docks to export coal. Brainerd grantees Climate Solutions, Sightline, and Washington Environmental Council joined the Power Past Coal Coalition to fight for this ruling.
