VANCOUVER, Wash. (AP) - Both supporters and opponents of a proposed oil terminal in Vancouver are preparing to face off in June in front of state regulators tasked with deciding the fate of the project.

The Columbian reports (https://bit.ly/24gWjnM ) that the Energy Facility Site Evaluation Council is set to enter a period of adjudication June 27, during which it will hear testimony before deciding whether to recommend the terminal be approved either outright or with conditions. Gov. Jay Inslee will make a final decision based on that recommendation.

Tesoro Corp. and Savage Cos., operating as Vancouver Energy, want to build a rail-to-marine oil transfer terminal along the Columbia River.

Since plans first surfaced in 2013 the project has faced vocal opposition. Vancouver Energy officials say the loud critics do not represent the majority.
