The board shall solicit qualifying projects to plan, design, and construct public
works projects needed to attract new industrial and commercial activities in areas
impacted by the closure or potential closure of large coal-fired electric generation
facilities, which for the purposes of this section means a facility that emitted more
than one million tons of greenhouse gases in any calendar year prior to 2008. The projects should be consistent with any applicable plans for major industrial
activity on lands formerly used or designated for surface coal mining and supporting
uses under RCW 36.70A.368. When the board receives timely and eligible project applications from a political
subdivision of the state for financial assistance for such projects, the board from
available funds shall give priority consideration to such projects.
