Utah looking to export its coal

Utah proposes to send 4 or 5 million tons of coal through an export terminal underdevelopment in Oakland at the former Army base. The state Community Impact Board intends to loan $53 million to four coal-producing counties to invest in the project led by Oakland developer Phil Tagami. However, critics say this is an utter misuse of money that is supposed to be spent on facilities that serve the public, not private industries. —Brian Maffly reports in the Salt Lake Tribune.
