Washington Gov. Jay Inslee won't say anything about the proposal to build the Northwest's largest oil-by-rail transfer terminal in Vancouver until the state permitting agency reviewing the project makes its recommendation.
A survey of Clark County employees shows a majority opposes loosening gun restrictions inside certain public buildings, but that hasn't deterred commissioners from discussing a new, less-restrictive gun policy.
Opponents of a planned oil-by-rail terminal at the Port of Vancouver urged the port Tuesday to cancel its lease with Tesoro Corp. and Savage Companies. They leveled several arguments against the project, including that it undermines commercial/residential redevelopment of Vancouver's waterfront, won't help America achieve energy independence, and puts people in harm's way.
Those who have commented on the proposal by Tesoro Corp. and Savage Companies to build the Northwest's largest oil-by-rail facility at the Port of Vancouver are overwhelmingly opposed to the project, according to a report released by the Washington Energy Facility Site Evaluation Council this week.
