Close to a thousand activists opposing coal exports turned out at a public hearing in Spokane yesterday to voice concerns to the Army Corps of Engineers.

Another public hearing in Boardman Oregon last night brought in over two hundred coal opponents.

They challenged the safety of a plan to ship coal by train to eastern Oregon, then send it in barges down the Columbia River for export.

At the Spokane hearing, around thirty temporary workers were hired by the coal companies to hold places in line for testimony.

KBOO’s Zeke Harrington spoke with Kim Larson of Power Past Coal about the hearing.

This December the Department of Environmental Quality will hold three hearings in Oregon where the public may comment on Ambre Energy’s proposed Morrow Pacific Coal Export Project.

Under the proposed system, coal would be strip-mined from Montana and Wyoming, and brought by train to Boardman, Oregon.

From there, the coal would be shipped by barge down the Columbia River for sale overseas.

If completed, barge traffic along the Columbia River is expected to double.

For more on the coming hearings, KBOO’s Zeke Harrington spoke with Jasmine Zimmer-Stucky, community organizer for Columbia Riverkeeper.

EPA Moves to Delist a Portland Superfund Cleanup Site

Portland's Heron Lakes Golf Course became a federal Superfund site nine years ago and this week the Environmental Protection Agency proposed not requiring clean up after all.

 

The North Portland site is contaminated with heavy metals, PCBs and DDT by waste-oil recyclers including the Bonneville Power Administration, Chevron, and Portland General Electric  - and these corporations would be on the hook for any EPA-mandated clean up costs.

For more, KBOO’s Joe Meyer spoke with Mark Stephan of the citizen’s advisory committee and Suzanne Skadowski with the EPA.

Atheist Rights Group Sues IRS Over Tax-Exempt Churches

program: 
Evening News
program date: 
Fri, 11/16/2012

A non-profit group representing atheists and agnostics filed a federal lawsuit this week calling on the IRS to prevent tax-exempt religious organizations from electioneering. The Wisconsin-based Freedom From Religion Foundation, which advocates for the separation of church and state, says that failing to enforce the tax code allows churches to advocate for candidates and unfairly raise money for political causes. According to the group, American religious organizations receive more than one billion dollars in tax-exempt contributions annually. Congress barred churches from using tax-exempt funds for politics in 1954, but since then the IRS has only revoked the tax exempt status of one church.


KBOO’s Zeke Harrington spoke with Annie Laurie Gaylor, co-president of the Freedom From Religion Foundation, for more on the lawsuit.
