Governors to Meet About Coal Port Project
Coal Exports
OLYMPIA, Wash. – Montana's governor is heading to Washington state to discuss a new Columbia River coal port being challenged by environmentalists over greenhouse-gas concerns.

Montana Gov. Brian Schweitzer is planning to meet with Washington Gov. Chris Gregoire Wednesday afternoon to discuss the project.

Conservation groups are challenging the permit for a planned port redevelopment in Longview, which is about 40 miles north of Portland, Ore. The project would handle about 5 million tons of coal annually. It would be shipped by rail from Wyoming and Montana.

Schweitzer is a supporter of the coal terminal. Gregoire has called for a balanced approach that recognizes environmental concerns and the need for jobs. Both are Democrats.

ANYTHING involving Washington Governor Christine Gregoire is bad for jobs, bad for the economy, and bad for business.
