LB Council Votes 9-0 To Deny Appeal, Independently Approves On Its Own ("De Novo Review") Contracts Enabling Continued Coal/Petroleum Coke Export (Using Open Rail Cars) With No New Environmental Review Since '92; Mayor Garcia Voices No Views Pro or Con

(Aug. 20, 2014, 7:25 a.m.)-- Following a roughly three hour hearing with sharply polarized testimony, the LB City Council voted 9-0 (motion by Andrews) to deny appeals and approve -- on the Council's independent de novo review -- contracts without new CEQA environmental review (since 1992) that will enable the long-term continued export of coal and bulk petroleum coke from the Port of Long Beach, including the continued use of uncovered rail cars.
