Responsible Growth * NE Washington is disappointed but not surprised that the Pend Oreille County’s Hearing Examiner ruled in favor of Pend Oreille County. It would be counter productive for the Hearing Examiner to rule in RG * NEW’s favor on the revised DNS/SEPA when he already ruled that the Usk Cryptomining Facility would not cause any environmental damage or harm during an earlier appeal.

There are a number of options in front of RG * NEW that we will be discussing with our legal team in the coming days.

The Hearing Examiner’s Decision is attached.
