And expect various groups to oppose the plan in court; questioning the economic value of the work or environmental issues.
Well said. Maybe they are waiting for a vessel to hit the rocks. No EIR required in advance of that event, and then it would probably be a lot easier to fast track the project! Again...reactive, not proactive!
