HJ 4 - Encourage more coal export

Sponsored by Rep. Joe Read, R-Ronan
TAKE ACTION

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 coal terminal 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 is expected to be heard in the Senate Natural Resources Committee on February 20.

Take Action! Contact members of the committee and tell them to vote no on HJ 4!
