Wyoming Governor Mark Gordon’s office said that Wyoming and Montana have submitted a reply brief to the United States Supreme Court. Wyoming and Montana are challenging the State of Washington’s decision to deny a permit for a proposed coal export terminal. Gordon’s office says the proposed terminal would provide access to new markets for Wyoming and Montana coal. The terminal would provide access to new markets for Wyoming and Montana coal. Wyoming Governor Mark Gordon said that this discriminatory action by another state limits ability to ship low-sulfur coal to buyers overseas, and that these exports would generate hundreds of millions of dollars in critical state revenue each year, employ hundreds of people, and replace dirtier coal that is mined with fewer environmental and labor regulations.

Governor Gordon added that ultimately, the suit is not just about coal- it is about a precedent that would allow coastal states to arbitrarily deny access to interior states.
