The hearing has wrapped up on the ConocoPhillips megaloads and whether to allow opponents to intervene in the permit case. “I will take this matter under advisement,” said hearing officer Merlyn Clark. “I will issue a decision before Thanksgiving, it will be a written recommendation to the director, it’ll then be in the hands of the director,” he said. “I want to compliment counsel for the excellent work that you have done providing me the briefing and the factual information I need to make a decision. Thank you. We are adjourned.”
