Submission Text
The proposed coal export terminal at Longview should be approved. Millennium Bulk Terminals has a clear and environmentally-sound plan that will be studied to make this port a reality and it will do much to contribute to the economy and vitality of the region and the country. Washington consumers know the meaning of hard work. We clock in and out every single day to ensure that our families have food on the table, a roof over their heads and other simple luxuries that support survival. That is why when an opportunity like Millennium Bulk Terminal project comes along that can offer more economic support through additional good-paying jobs and local revenue, we’re quick to sign our support. Idling approval of MBT any longer is idling a chance to give households across Washington a better way of life. So I urge simply and directly: forgo any further delay on MBT. Consumers like myself are ready to utilize its potential. Thanks again to the agencies for allowing public comment on this important proposal. It should continue to go forward with much enthusiasm.
