Please move forward with the government’s environmental study. I say let's get moving with the Longview port ASAP. This review process is unprecedented. To single out a particular commodity does not make economic sense. Agriculture goods as well as many other exported commodities use rail traffic, truck traffic, and marine cargo to get their items to markets around the world. This draft EIS for Millennium’s proposal is unprecedented and has far reaching economic implications. 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.
