he proposed coal export terminal at Longview should be approved. Millennium Bulk Terminals has a clear and environmentally-sound plan that will be studied to make this port a reality and it will do much to contribute to the economy and vitality of the region and the country.
Millennium already handles coal at their site, and they have done so for more than 70 years. This is not a broad departure from current industrial uses and shouldn’t have been treated so. I believe they are a good neighbor and their environmental review should be treated like every other commodity down at the Port of Longview. We need more good corporate citizens in Longview.
It is clear to me, Millennium Bulk Terminals has a project that will have long-term positive impacts on local and regional economies in Washington. Millennium has maintained and presented ongoing efforts to uphold the current environmental regulations set for its project in Longview. I have good faith and trust this will continue and the company should be allowed to move forward without further delay. Thank you for allowing me the opportunity to comment.
