Submission Text
I would like to express my opposition to increased and seemingly endless coal trains running through my Spokane community. First, I live about a mile away from the main rail lines...and my children breath this air. We don't want coal dust ruining our air and health (in pursuit of profits for the coal industry). Secondly, coal is a dirty, polluting energy source which should not be sent abroad...if anything our country should use it here (or better yet, not at all). I am adamantly opposed to these "coal trains". I ask the the government will make a decision in favor of the public and not industry profits.
