Submission Text
Our state is trade dependent and a critical part of the import/export infrastructure of the West coast. International trade is essential to the economy of Washington and supports many family-wage jobs. I support Millennium Bulk Terminals site in Cowlitz County. These trains are no different than the coal cars we’ve transported through our state for many decades. In reality, not one ton more of coal will be used globally because of U.S. exports, and the net gain in greenhouse gas emissions is insignificant. If we don’t build these terminals, energy suppliers will just look elsewhere for their supply! Enough with the schedule delays, bring this process to a close.
