Officials accepting applications for 250 new coal jobs in a month or so. Local companies bring back the coal companies for coal export, the national companies do nothing. The coal terminals have Not had much luck in Oregon or Washington for coal loading terminals on the Coilumbia River. Not as many coal export terminals as they would like to have.

It's just a start, but we need it badly.
Clean coal is not just available, it is the life-blood of our national electrical system. Gotta have it.
