I am proud to add my voice in support of the Millennium Bulk Terminals project in Longview. The project is an excellent opportunity for the community and I am thrilled to see that Millennium has made strong commitments both to the economy and to the environment.
Washington can have BOTH economic growth and a healthy environment. Millennium contributes to both. It will create hundreds of family-wage jobs and has already commenced the clean up of the Reynolds Aluminum site. It will make it cheaper and faster for Washington exporters to get their goods to market and will comply with all existing environmental regulations. The company will contribute to reducing Cowlitz 8% unemployment and will use the cleanest covered loading and unloading conveyors available. And it will contribute to Longview’s quality of life at the same time as ensuring that approaching coal cars have surfactants effectively reducing coal dust to non- significant levels.
Thank you for letting me submit my opinions and show my support for the project.
