Bring the never-ending studies and ever-expanding permitting costs to a close â€" and move on to a permit decision. Millennium is cleaning up the former Reynolds Aluminum site and protecting the Columbia River ecosystem at no taxpayer expense. It has made a major environmental contribution to Longview and the state of Washington because it knows it’s the right thing to do. It has spared no expense with covered loading and unloading facilities at the terminal. And the coal train loads arriving at the terminal will all be covered with surfactants that effectively reduce coal dust, eliminating any serious concerns. Please do not delay the permitting process any further. It is important to get people back to work. There are good jobs on the line and waiting on your review.
