I appreciate the chance to comment on a proposal like Millennium Bulk Terminals that is crucial to the future success of Washington. At a time when Washington needs jobs, we cannot turn away the kind of opportunity that the proposed Millennium Bulk Terminal would provide. The project would create work right away during construction, and plenty more jobs would stay around to run the terminal. Plus, all of those wages generated would trickle back into our local and state economies. At a time when our state unemployment rates are below the national average, we cannot miss big opportunities for new business like this one. I appreciate the agencies’ hard work on reviewing this project. Please don’t let it get bogged down in an expanded scope of review. This old industrial site needs a new life.
