Department of Ecology plans review of coal port

Bad for the economy

Let’s dispense with the Department of Ecology’s review and save the state several million dollars. [“State plans sweeping review of coal port,” page one, Aug. 1.]

There’s no way this coal project will ever get approved by the state of Washington. But let’s at least acknowledge a few things in the process.

One, China is still going to get its coal, now from Canada.

Two, the Canadians get the jobs and the taxes associated with the coal operations.

Given the recent Boeing decision to move work to California, it’s increasingly obvious that the business environment in Washington is in serious trouble.

At least we can count on the $15-per-hour fast-food jobs. Good thing, because that’s all the jobs that are going to be left here.
