VANCOUVER, Wash. —

About 100 people attended a presentation Monday night in Vancouver on plans to build an oil-by-rail terminal at the Port of Vancouver.

The Tesoro Corp. and Savage Companies want to build a $110 million terminal that would handle as much as 380,000 barrels of crude oil a day. The oil would arrive by train from North Dakota and be shipped to U.S. refineries.

The Columbian reports ( http://bit.ly/16TJG3M) the Washington Energy Facility Site Evaluation Council will review the proposal for a year or more and make a recommendation to Gov. Jay Inslee, who has the final say.

Supporters say it will create jobs and tax revenue and support energy independence. There were about 20 protesters outside the hearing with environmental and safety concerns.
