Americans urgently need jobs and Millennium Bulk Terminals is ready to provide them. Please approve a reasonable response for the environmental study and help get Americans back to work.
MBT has received a thorough and comprehensive draft EIS review one five years in the making. If we don’t take the next step forward and turn this vision into a reality, it’s going to be citizens like myself and my family suffering the consequences. Our state desperately needs the jobs and revenue this project would create. That is why we must take the next step forward with MBT and move it from vision to reality.
As you well know, an EIS is supposed to take a "hard look at environmental consequences" and reach a decision based on the facts presented. The scope of this document should be limited to the immediate impacted areas so we can keep moving forward. Hundreds of people with families are not only waiting but depending on having the security of a long-term, good-paying job.
