Submission Text
I support American jobs and the proposed port at Longview will create much needed employment for hundreds of Americans. Please include my comments as part of the public response to Millennium Bulk Terminals plan. Millennium is cleaning up the former Reynolds Aluminum site and protecting the Columbia River ecosystem at no taxpayer expense. It has made a major environmental contribution to Longview and the state of Washington because it knows it’s the right thing to do. It has spared no expense with covered loading and unloading facilities at the terminal. And the coal train loads arriving at the terminal will all be covered with surfactants that effectively reduce coal dust, eliminating any serious concerns. Thank you for reviewing my comments. This project is deserving of an impartial EIS and should not experience further delays. Sincerely, Richard Cobbs
