Dear Board of Lane County Commissioners:
As you prepare to vote on this resolution, please consider the potential huge negative health and environmental impacts of coal exports. Lane County residents have fought long and hard to improve air quality, public health and our quality of life. Please do not undercut that progress by allowing new huge risks to the health of our families, businesses and communities.Please amend the current resolution to:
• Support rural jobs and efficient rail transportation for Lane County products
• Omit all references to coal and coal exports to protect our communities from pollution associated with the transport and burning of coal.
Further, we ask the Board of Lane County Commissioners to schedule a work session on coal export and a public hearing on this issue.
