Allow me to voice my strong support for the proposed port at Longview. We need to move on as quickly as possible. The draft EIS is sufficient and complete â€" it’s time for progress.
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.
Please do not delay the permitting process any further. It is important to get people back to work. There are good jobs on the line and waiting on your review.
