Submission Text
In a time that has included seeing neighbors and friends out of work and under-employed, we need to encourage economic development. In my opinion, that cannot happen soon enough. That is why I am writing today. Ultimately, global warming and the impact of fossil fuels on the environment are national government and international government issues and did not need to be studied in this DEIS. Now that it’s done, let’s move on to the final EIS! Millennium Bulk Terminals EIS should be thorough but held to the same standards as any other port proposal. We need to do everything we can to strengthen and grow the economy of Washington and the west in general. The project proposed will do just that. Thank you. Sincerely, Jade Butler 82718
