Submission Text
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. Raising a family is tough, and this economy is not making it any easier. That’s why we need to capitalize on any opportunity that we have to provide good-paying jobs that can support a family. The Millennium Bulk Terminal project will create jobs that can help families give their children the head-start that they need. There are men and women throughout the state that are waiting for the chance to work hard for their families. It simply makes no sense to turn them away at this point. The important thing is that the concerns people have of the proposed project that Millennium Bulk Terminals is offering will be addressed responsibly. Exporting at Millennium is needed now to bring a tremendous amount of good paying jobs and increase tax revenue to the local area. I ask that you keep the permitting process at an expeditious manner. Thank you.
