Statement on Washington Department of Natural Resources’ Decision to Deny Lease for Columbia River Coal Export Terminal
Ted Zukoski, Staff Attorney, Earthjustice: “We think it’s important that there be regulations in place that don’t give away the store.”
Adrian Martinez, Staff Attorney, Earthjustice: "On the local level and state level, there’s going to be immense opportunities. There’s a lot of energy and engagement from people. I don’t think we can underestimate how the November election impacted Southern Californians."
Heidi McIntosh, Managing Attorney, Earthjustice: "Challenging a national monument is extraordinarily difficult. The Utah Association of Counties and others who challenged the designation of the Grand Staircase-Escalante National Monument found that out."
