Tulalip Tribes withholding approval for pier

The Tulalip Tribes of Washington are withholding approval for the construction of a new pier and may exchange their support if a tribal tax bill is revived, The Everett Herald reports.

The Tulalips are negotiating with the Port of Everett over the new pier. So far, tribal officials say the port isn't doing enough to protect tribal fishing rights.

But the deal may be sealed if a bill to return a share of state taxes to the Tulalip Tribes is resurrected. The bill died without action by the state Legislature.
