Trump Administration Could Use Military Bases To Export Coal, Gas

The Trump administration is considering using military bases to accomodate export facilities for coal or natural gas, Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke has told The Associated Press. Zinke said the strategy is being considered as a way to thwart opposition by California, Oregon and Washington leaders to allowing export terminals in their states to sell coal or gas to Asia. Sen. Steve Danes (R-Mont.) also told the AP that using the bases is a possible strategy for exports. Rep. Liz Cheney (R-Wyo.) told AP she’s talked about the military base idea with Zinke and Energy Secretary Rick Perry.
