". . . directed the Seattle Department of Planning and Development to investigate the Port of Seattle's decision to make Seattle the homeport for Shell's Arctic drilling fleet.Did you get that? 'It's important that the public and surrounding businesses are informed of all the possible impacts of this lease." Our former governor was doing everything he could, along with his then Attorney General/Commissioner of Natural Resources, now Senator Sullivan, to prevent local communities from knowing and having a say about anything.
"Any project of this apparent significance to our industrial lands must go through the appropriate review," Murray said in a statement. 'It's important that the public and surrounding businesses are informed of all the possible impacts of this lease—both economic and environmental—and that these impacts are sufficiently disclosed and evaluated. This is why I’m directing DPD to conduct a thorough review of the Terminal 5 proposal and determine if the anticipated activities at the terminal involving the Shell drilling fleet require new permits before it can proceed.'"
Some politicians, it seems, think beyond the short term possible job bump, to the bigger issues.
Are we now going to start hearing about Seattle overreach from some of our Alaskan politicians?
Thanks S, for the link.
