LONGVIEW, Wash. – Wyoming’s governor is visiting Washington state next week to push for more coal terminals like the one proposed at Cherry Point.

Wyoming has a lot of coal, but it needs Washington and other west coast states to help ship it to Asia.

Wyoming’s governor Matt Mead supports more coal terminals like the ones proposed in Longview and at Cherry Point.

He’ll tour the proposed site in Longview and meet with lawmakers and business leaders.

He is not intending to visit with Governor Jay Inslee during his stay.
