Submission Text
It's with great enthusiasm that I write today to express my support of the DEIS, the study was thorough and it’s time to get Millennium Bulk Terminals port off the ground and under construction. We need the jobs this terminal will provide. The draft EIS for Millennium is exhaustive and sufficient. The project has been patiently seeking permits for five years. Southwest Washington needs family wage jobs and MBT will create them. Despite some negative opinions, this permitting process will produce facts that show a modern port can be planned by a company, then evaluated by an agency to provide ways for production portals, while at the same time protecting the environment and enhancing the socio-economics of a region. It will be a job well done!
