Puyallup Tribe, environmental groups file legal challenges against Tacoma LNG plant | Tacoma News Tribune

“We are in a climate crisis,” Jan Hasselman, Earthjustice attorney representing the environmental and health appellants, said in the release. “The Tacoma LNG project will lock in fossil fuel use for decades at the time when it must be urgently phased out. We will hold state agencies accountable whenever they fail to tell the truth.”

The Earthjustice filing contends the construction permit “is contrary to law because it is inconsistent with the requirements and intent of state and federal laws designed to protect the environment. Specifically, the permit relies on environmental analyses that violate the State Environmental Policy Act (SEPA) and otherwise clearly erroneous and contrary to law. Additionally, the permit violates and is inconsistent with the requirements of the state and federal Clean Air Acts.”
