Is Washington on the Hot Seat?
Updated On: Sep 12, 2013

Will the state of Washington's unprecedented review of the Gateway terminal harm Washington's economy?

We think so and you can hear from a growing number of influential voices who agree in the recent article Ecology on Hot Seat About Coal-Port Analysis -- Business Calls it Bizarre, Worrisome. The story highlights concern across the region that the decision could set a far-reaching precedent that impacts every major enterprise in Washington, to the detriment of our economic future.

But you can tell the state that overregulation is not the answer by making your voice heard and commenting here. It will only take a few minutes and makes a big difference in protecting community priorities.

Through this decision the state would be able to decide which products can be shipped from the state whenever it feels the environmental impact will be "significant" -- effectively using environmental regulation to exert control over interstate commerce, which has always been the role of federal authorities.

This is a dangerous and slippery slope. The state has the responsibility to assess economic and environmental impact of proposed projects. It also has the duty to ensure that the process is guided by law, not politics.

Learn the facts and
Tell the state of Washington to make job creation and trade a bigger priority than overregulation.
