Our environment is important to our quality of life, but equally important is the ability to make a living. The proposed coal export terminal in Cowlitz County will strike the right balance between environmental stewardship and economic growth. It should be allowed to move forward. Cowlitz County continues to have a high unemployment rate. We need these jobs and we’ve paid a high cost with this drawn out permitting process so far. It’s time to stop the delay and bring about development and economic relief. Those who care about the environment as well as those who care about jobs can get behind this project. Thank you for allowing me to comment and please don't delay in moving forward on Millennium’s application.
