On Monday 01/29/18, Gov Jay Inslee announced he will not approve the Tesoro-Savage oil terminal the vendors proposed to be built at the Port of Vancouver. The terminal had already been rejected by the Energy Facility Site Evaluation Council (EFSEC), and tacitly by the citizens of Clark County when they elected Don Orange overwhelmingly on his anti-oil terminal platform.
The Governor and EFSEC cited similar non-mitigating circumstances leading to their decisions. They included dangers from seismic risks, oil spills and train wreck risks, and inability to control a fire or explosion. Read the article and Jay's remarks in the Seattle Times - LINK
