Oregon legislators heard testimony for and against moving coal through the state and then shipping it overseas.  The companies that will move the coal said environmental regulations would be followed and it would mean hundreds of jobs and revenue for communities.  But, Andy Harris, with Physicians for Social Responsibility, said there are dangers because coal is the most toxic of fossil fuels. 

 

One method for moving the coal includes using barges and fishermen say that causes increased risk for river users.  Farmers say the coal dust could damage their crops.  The companies still need environmental approves and the o-k for the Army Corps of Engineers before they can move forward.
