Legal Expert Says Army Corps Rejection of Permit for Gateway Coal Export Terminal Looks “Pretty Air Tight”

No Comments

first_img FacebookTwitterLinkedInEmailPrint分享Christopher Coats in SNL:Few options have emerged for reviving the Gateway Pacific coal export terminal in Washington following the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers’ recent decision to halt permitting of the controversial project, according to stakeholders involved.On May 9, the Corps announced that it halted the permitting process for the terminal in response to a challenge from the Lummi Nation over fishing waters protected by tribal agreements. The project would have been one of the largest coal terminals ever built in the U.S.Project-backer SSA Marine, which previously suspended its own environmental review, stopped short of offering any clear plan for challenging the Corps’ decision when it was announced. However, a representative did tell S&P Global Market Intelligence that it is exploring all possible options for reviving the project.Mark Squillace, a University of Colorado law professor and former member of the U.S. Department of the Interior solicitor’s office, cast some doubt on the ability to challenge the decision in court. Squillace called the case “pretty air tight.”Specifically, Squillace cited a part of the decision that stated: “To evaluate impacts on treaty fishing rights, the Corps conducts a de minimis determination to determine whether the impacts to treaty fishing rights are of legal significance. If it is legally significant, then Congressional authorization would be required to allow the impact. The process includes request for specific information in the form of declarations regarding the Lummi’s fishing and crabbing activities at or near the proposed project.”“Importantly … the company does not appear to contest this point so it does not seem like it could be raised on appeal,” Squillace said. “And if that is indeed the legal standard, then I think the Corps has offered a solid justification for their decision.”For that reason, he said the court would be unlikely to find the Corps’ actions “arbitrary and capricious.”“It would not surprise me if the company appeals and there may be procedural issues that are not evident from the face of the decision, but on the merits I think the Corps is on pretty solid ground,” Squillace said.Full article $:   https://www.snl.com/InteractiveX/article.aspx?ID=36496440&KPLT=4 Legal Expert Says Army Corps Rejection of Permit for Gateway Coal Export Terminal Looks “Pretty Air Tight”last_img read more

Dallas Stars’ Corey Perry did the ‘walk of shame’ — and Twitter had a field day with it

No Comments

first_imgThe Winter Classic is a premier event on the NHL’s calendar and this year’s version was no different. But for Dallas Stars forward Corey Perry, it was over in a mere two minutes and 44 seconds when he was ejected for elbowing the Nashville Predators’ Ryan Ellis in the head. Ellis (concussion) did not return to the game. Normally, when a player is ejected they go right to the tunnel and to their dressing room. Well, with the rink situated in the middle of the Cotton Bowl — the walk to the Stars’ locker room on Wednesday was a little longer than usual. So, of course, Twitter did what Twitter does and had some fun with Perry’s walk of shame.The Corey Perry walk of shame, paired with “Boulevard of Broken Dreams” by Green Day just hits different. pic.twitter.com/o5dn10LmXY— Hockey Daily 365 (@HockeyDaily365) January 1, 2020Corey Perry’s walk of shame, but I added the penalty song from The World Juniors pic.twitter.com/NwRj0QPEFM— Gongshow Gary 🇨🇦 (@SuckMyDeke) January 1, 2020I love the walk of shame for Corey Perry.

Iowa House votes to cap insulin copays at $100

No Comments

first_imgDES MOINES — The Iowa House has voted to establish a limit on the co-payment insurance companies require to fill a prescription for insulin. Representative Ann Meyer, a registered nurse from Fort Dodge, says it’s a $100 cap.“The cap applies to each individual prescription and allows for an entire month of insulin,” Meyer says.People with Type 1 and Type 2 diabetes must take insulin to control their blood sugar levels, but the cost of insulin has doubled in the past eight years. Representative Lindsay James of Dubuque says it’s become so expensive, some patients are rationing their insulin or don’t have the money to pay for it at all.“Family members and friends should never be forced to stand at the grave site of their loved one because companies are protecting their bottom line,” James says, “and yet this is exactly what it happening.”The bill has no groups or businesses registered to lobby against it. Colorado and Illinois are the only states that currently have a co-payment limit on monthly insulin purchases and it’s $100. Last week, the Virginia legislature voted for a $50-a-month price cap and New Mexico’s legislature vote to establish a monthly co-pay cap of $25. Neither has been signed yet by the governors of those states.last_img read more
