After four years of mulling it over, the U.S. Navy has decided a controversial proposal to greatly expand its secretive dark-of-the-night training for Navy SEALs in Washington state parks and public marinas will have no significant environmental impact which, barring a public outcry, will probably clear the way for implementation of the plan. This week on the Compass, we talk with the executive director of the Navy watchdog group Sound Defense Alliance about the plan.
