Please accept my comments on Millennium Bulk Terminals Longview DEIS. I approve of this project and would like to see its quick implementation.
Transportation of coal by rail from mines in Wyoming, Montana and elsewhere to Longview will make use of existing rail transportation infrastructure that is part of a nationwide commercial transportation system. Further, rail traffic across Washington in down. The railroad companies are in the business of managing rail capacity and don’t need to be told how to run its business. The rail line was unnecessarily studied get on with it already.
The agencies are doing a great job of evaluating Millennium Bulk Terminals port proposal. I am convinced that this project’s permit should move forward without further delay.
