SPOKANE, Wash. (AP) -- Washington Gov. Jay Inslee has joined those against industrial development near Fairchild Air Force Base.
 
He directed the state departments of Commerce and Transportation this week to file an appeal with the Growth Management Hearings Board challenging the Spokane County commissioner's 4,100-acre expansion of the urban growth area.
 
The governor fears encroachment that could threaten the future of the air base.
