The Environmental Law Caucus of Gonzaga University Law School, The Lands Council, Spokane Riverkeeper, and the Sierra Club host a public presentation on coal and oil train impacts on the Spokane area.
Traffic expert Terry C. Whiteside of Whiteside & Associates and Margie MacDonald of Western Organization of Resource Councils (WORC) will present findings from the report “Heavy Traffic Still Ahead” which reevaluates the anticipated increase in coal train traffic in light of current proposals for new or expanded port facilities in the Pacific Northwest.
Spokane City Council President Ben Stuckart will open the presentation with some remarks on the issues of coal and oil transport through Spokane.
The presentation will conclude with plenty of time for public questions and discussion with the presenters.
This event will be held in the Barbieri Moot Courtroom located on the first floor of the Gonzaga University Law School. For more information please contact Bart Mihailovich, Spokane Riverkeeper. This event is free and open to the public.
