Coal train webinar materials available

AWC hosted a two-part series of webinars to provide information to our members about proposed coal export facilities and the associated rail traffic. The first webinar was held on October 31, where we heard from representatives from Burlington Northern Santa Fe, the State Freight Mobility Board, and the Washington Public Ports Association. Attorney Eric Laschever explained the environmental review process.

The second webinar was held on November 14 and featured representatives from Climate Solutions, Washington Physicians for Social Responsibility, Sightline Institute; a traffic consultant who has done rail traffic impact studies on these proposals for several cities in Washington; and a legal professional who discussed the environmental review process.

Materials from both webinars are available at the links below
