Montana Governor Backs Megaloads

Item: Several groups – and Montana governor – contend mega-loads mean mega-dollars/Dustin Hurst, Idaho Reporter

More Info: Schweitzer says that those who are worried about the shipments leaking or spilling have no need to fear because the drums are only constructed of steel and contain no fluids.  Speaking on a Montana radio show, Schweitzer said he supports the plan and his state will work to make load transportation easy and simple while following state law.   The Montana governor has also said that if permits are denied for the large loads, it would be a “job killer” for his state.

Question: If there’s no real danger to the environment, since no liquids will be transported, is there a real reason to protest the mega-loads when so many jobs are on the line?
