I appreciate the agencies offering this opportunity to comment on Millennium Bulk Terminals DEIS. The port at Longview will bring many good paying jobs to Washington and will encourage the development of our natural resources nationwide, helping to lift us out of our current nationwide economic depression.
Transportation of coal by rail from mines in Wyoming, Montana and elsewhere to Longview will make use of existing rail transportation infrastructure that is part of a nationwide commercial transportation system. Further, rail traffic across Washington in down. The railroad companies are in the business of managing rail capacity and don’t need to be told how to run its business. The rail line was unnecessarily studied, get on with it already.
Thank you for the opportunity to comment on the process and for considering my input as you begin reviewing this project.
