Wyoming Bill Would Boost Coal Exports

The Casper Star-Tribune reports that “Wyoming could help finance the construction of a coal export dock in the Pacific Northwest, according to the executive director of the Wyoming Infrastructure Authority.”  

“Loyd Drain said he had a ‘serious’ conversation with an unidentified party in the past six months about the possibility of financing a coal port.”  

“His comments come as state lawmakers ready a bill that would boost the WIA’s borrowing authority to $3 billion and allow the agency to work on projects outside Wyoming.”
