LONGVIEW, WA, May 17, 2017 (Local News) -After some delay, Gov. Inslee signed a bill Tuesday that will allow KapStone’s Longview mill to profit from selling biomass renewable energy credits. KapStone Paper and Packaging Corp. stands to earn hundreds of thousands of dollars annually under the legislation.

Originally Inslee had been scheduled to sign the bill last week, but his office pushed it back for further review. The governor had previously vetoed a similar bill last year out of a concern that it would allow biomass energy to out-compete other renewable energies, such as wind and solar power.
