Submission Text
The Millennium Bulk Terminals proposed coal export terminal should be approved and the port should be allowed to move forward. It's good for Washington and her neighbors. Basic economic principles already tells us that not one ton more of coal will be used globally because of exports at Millennium; supply routes have no effect on demand. Keep it realistic. Keep it local. Despite some negative opinions, this permitting process will produce facts that show a modern port can be planned by a company, then evaluated by an agency to provide ways for production portals, while at the same time protecting the environment and enhancing the socio-economics of a region. It will be a job well done!
