Submission Text
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. This review process is unprecedented. To single out a particular commodity does not make economic sense. Agriculture goods as well as many other exported commodities use rail traffic, truck traffic, and marine cargo to get their items to markets around the world. This draft EIS for Millennium’s proposal is unprecedented and has far reaching economic implications. In today's economic climate, the importance of adding a significant amount of family wage jobs should not be taken lightly. Millennium’s proposal is showing a commitment to being environmentally responsible, making safety a priority, and helping fuel our economy which is what we need. Please take these things in consideration while deciding the scope of this project. Thank you for your time.
