Local Residents Testify to Halt Proposed Export Terminal in Plaquemines Parish

BELLE CHASSE, La. - Parish leadership, experts and residents gathered Thursday night at the Belle Chasse Auditorium for a Louisiana Department of Natural Resources public hearing on the proposed RAM coal export terminal. A state judge from the 25th District Court revoked RAM Terminals, LLC’s previously granted coastal use permit in late 2014, determining it had been illegally issued and required the company to re-submit the permit application with more extensive analysis. Yesterday’s hearing was in response to resolutions from Jefferson and Gretna as well as public concern over the company’s proposal.
