The transmission system of the Bonneville Power Administration would be sold off under the proposed federal budget for next year released by President Donald Trump’s administration.
A new study says Pacific Northwest utility ratepayers could save hundreds of millions of dollars if the Bonneville Power Administration and Energy Northwest close the region’s only commercial nuclear power plant in Richland and replace its output with renewable energy.
The Northwest’s only nuclear power plant shut down unexpectedly shortly before noon on Sunday.
The House on Tuesday easily approved a bipartisan bill that would for the first time regulate tens of thousands of toxic chemicals in everyday products from household cleaners to clothing and furniture.
The precise details are stored deep in agency archives and would take almost forever to ferret out. But here’s likely what happened: At about 10 a.m. on May 24, 1990, an angler brought a squawfish to the registration station at LePage Park at the mouth of the John Day River in the Columbia Gorge.
Pikeminnow are pretty close to the bottom of the piscatorial prestige list in the Northwest. But the serious anglers in the sport-reward program – the guys making $50,000 to $70,000 a year – are just as sophisticated and skilled as top-notch bass and walleye tournament fishermen.
