About a dozen Montanans were in Spokane Wednesday to talk to Washington state lawmakers about legislation that would impact the Colstrip coal-fired power plant southeast of Billings.
The Colstrip plant is partially owned by several Washington utilities, and exports a lot of the electricity it generates to Washington. But now, forecasts are for coal power to get more expensive.
