Cowlitz County joins federal lawsuit against Inslee

Cowlitz County has filed an amicus brief to join the federal lawsuit against Governor Jay Inslee. Lighthouse Resources, Millennium Bulk Terminal’s (MBT) parent company, filed the action in January asserting that Inslee and his administration were blocking coal from traveling from western states through MBT by unlawfully denying necessary permits for approval. The County stated that even though it was a co-lead agency in creating the environmental impact statements (EIS), it felt its “local digression was disregarded by the Hearings Examiner.”
