HJ 4 - Encourage more coal export

Sponsored by Rep. Joe Read, R-Ronan

This joint resolution would send a message from the legislature to Washington, D.C that Montana wants the federal government to intervene and force Washington state to allow the Millennium Bulk Terminals coal port to be built to increase the export of Montana coal to Asia. The Legislature has more pressing issues than to waste its energy on meaningless gestures encouraging the federal government to meddle in state affairs. The bill passed out of the House and was heard in the Senate Natural Resources Committee on February 20.

HJ4 passed out of Senate on March 12 and has been signed by the Speaker of the House and filed with the Secretary of State.
