MOUNT VERNON, Wash. —

Environmentalists are set to meet in Mount Vernon to protest the proposed Bellingham coal terminal and the affect it could have as about 20 trains a day transport the coal through Western Washington.

The Skagit Valley Herald says the meeting at 7 p.m. Thursday at the Lincoln Theater in Mount Vernon is being hosted by nine environmental groups from Skagit and Whatcom counties.

The $600 million cargo terminal at Cherry Point in Bellingham is expected to create 1,700 jobs for construction and 250 permanent jobs as well as generate $54 million in annual tax revenues.
