Tribal Council statement on Tribe’s appeal of the decision by state Pollutions Control Hearings Board to uphold Puget Sound Energy’s permit to build an LNG facility:
As we said last month, we are profoundly disappointed the board upheld the remainder of the permit and we expect the decision will embolden companies that start projects that feed climate change and put vulnerable communities at risk. We were put here to protect these lands and waters and that is what we will continue to do. We will continue the fight. Too much is at stake.
