U.S. Senator John Barrasso (R-Wyo.) released the following statement regarding the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers’ decision not to conduct a programmatic environmental impact statement (PEIS) for coal export terminals in the Pacific Northwest:

 “The Army Corps of Engineers’ decision to follow the law and resist political pressure from extreme environmental activists is great news for our state and Wyoming workers. As the permitting process for new coal export terminals moves forward, the White House should stand with the Corps and support its wise decision. With millions of unemployed Americans, the last thing Washington should do is make it harder for our state to export Powder River Basin coal and create good-paying jobs.”

 

At a House Energy and Power Subcommittee hearing Tueday, the Army Corp of Engineers announced there was “no compelling justification for the preparation of a programmatic EIS with respect to the three proposed facilities under review.
