The trade industry is one of the bright spots in an otherwise bleak economy. Please approve the coal export terminal at Cowlitz County and speed up the permitting process to help get our economy moving again.
Cowlitz County and Washington state need family wage jobs, and this is a good project that will create them. We’ve studied the project enough â€" now it is time to move forward with a fair process for permitting.
I urge you not to be swayed by outside fanatics who do not care about our county or our people. The environmental review process for Millennium Bulk Terminals should be held to the same standard as every other port or infrastructure project. We have a very fair and comprehensive process in place, and I question the motives of those who say otherwise. Thank you for your consideration.
