December 4: Prepare for the Dec. 11 Energy Facility Site Evaluation Council (EFSEC) Hearing (Spokane)

Wednesday, December 4th, 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm, Dec 4th 2013

Washington's Energy Facility Site Evaluation Council (EFSEC) is coming to Spokane on Dec. 11th to hear our community's concerns about Tesoro Savage's proposal to build the largest crude oil transit terminal on the West Coast at the Port of Vancouver, Washington. If approved, crude oil would be transported by rail from the Bakken fields in North Dakota and tar sands in Canada, directly through Spokane, to Vancouver, Washington.

To help you prepare for the December 11th hearing, we will host an advocacy training / workshop at the GU School of Law moot court room.

This training / workshop will consist of:

  • Introduction to the issue
  • Explanation of key issues and talking points
  • Training on effective testimony
  • An opportunity to write written comments for the record. Note: The deadline for submitting your concerns to EFSEC is December 18. Submit written comments by email to efsec@utc.wa.gov or by postal mail to Stephen Posner, EFSEC Interim Manager, Energy Facility Siting Evaluation Council, P.O. Box 43172, 1300 S. Evergreen Park Dr. SW, Olympia, Washington 98504.
