I am proud to add my voice in support of the Millennium Bulk Terminals project in Longview. The project is an excellent opportunity for the community and I am thrilled to see that Millennium has made strong commitments both to the economy and to the environment. Coal exports are a huge opportunity for the Northwest. The infrastructure coal companies are creating will expand trade of all kinds, from apples to software. At a time of increased competition from both West and East Coast ports, Washington needs to seize these opportunities to expand trade and create thousands of family-wage jobs. It is clear to me, Millennium Bulk Terminals has a project that will have long-term positive impacts on local and regional economies in Washington. Millennium has maintained and presented ongoing efforts to uphold the current environmental regulations set for its project in Longview. I have good faith and trust this will continue and the company should be allowed to move forward without further delay. Thank you for allowing me the opportunity to comment. Sincerely, Curtis Combs Curtis@cfever.com 99301
