My comments pertain to the draft EIS for the Longview coal export facility. I hope you will give them good consideration.
The draft EIS for Millennium is exhaustive and sufficient. The project has been patiently seeking permits for five years. Southwest Washington needs family wage jobs and MBT will create them.
We hear a lot of opinions about coal, but the reality of the Millennium Project is that it will have state-of-the-art equipment and best of all will bring life back to a site that has been left stagnant for some time. Many of us would love to have the opportunity to spend our entire career in one place. Millennium is offering that to us. Why not take advantage?
