Thank you for this opportunity to voice my support of Millennium Bulk Terminals - Longview project. This port will benefit the economy of the region, and that of the nation.
This project is exactly the kind of economic boost that the state really needs. The benefits are numerous. The terminal would create jobs, generate significant new tax revenue, and help attract businesses to our area. In many ways, it can be a source of continued growth for years to come. It is tough to believe that a project with an obvious upside like this has been held up for so long. Those in charge should view this project for its benefits to the community and see it through to the finish. Our citizens are counting on it.
It is important that regulatory agencies keep the playing field level by being fair and consistent. The permitting process for this coal export terminal should be similar to other export terminals.
