Filing Date Type File Action Taken Summary 12/16/2021 Petition for Review Download Petition for judicial review filed by Puyallup Tribe of Indians. Tribe Sought Review of Approvals for Liquefied Natural Gas Facility in Washington. The Puyallup Tribe of Indians filed a petition for review of Washington Pollution Control Hearings Board decisions affirming approvals for a liquefied natural gas facility. The Tribe’s petition raises climate change-related issues, including whether the supplemental environmental impact statement (SEIS) erroneously deemed status quo greenhouse gas emissions to be “insignificant” and whether the SEIS’s reliance on a comparison to a “speculative ‘no action’ scenario” to determine the project’s “net” emissions was arbitrary.
