Anti-coal activists say the International Port of Coos Bay trying to hide information about proposed coal export projects by denying access to public records. On Wednesday, the Sierra Club appealed the Port’s decision to charge nearly $20,000 for access to 2,500 public records of coal export and storage proposals in and around Coos Bay. . .
“They have not been transparent,” [Sierra Club’s Shane Levy] said. “They have not been honest about a project that has the potential to impact not just Coos Bay but the entire state. We don’t know who the coal providers are or how much of their product they want to send through the state of Oregon.”
