BELLINGHAM, Wash. – Wyoming is joining Montana in supporting the proposed coal terminal at Cherry Point.

Delegates toured the Gateway Pacific terminal site Tuesday, including Loyd Drain of the Wyoming Infrastructure Authority.

He says because Wyoming’s coal is in such high demand here in the U.S.,  they’re only just starting to consider exporting coal to other countries.

 

He says the proposed terminal would bring thousands of long-term family-wage jobs to both Washington and Wyoming.
