(Vancouver, WA)  --  An ordinance that would prohibit all future crude-oil facilities in Vancouver's industrial zone will go before the governor, following a unanimous vote by the City Council.  The Council took the vote yesterday, following public testimony and protests over the issue.  Arguments included the importance of economic impact, safety, and effect on the environment.  Governor Jay Inslee will decide on whether to ban a proposed project in which a rail-to-marine oil-transfer terminal would be built in Vancouver along the Columbia River.
