The proposed coal export terminal at Longview should be approved. Millennium Bulk Terminals has a clear and environmentally-sound plan that will be studied to make this port a reality and it will do much to contribute to the economy and vitality of the region and the country. Millennium is proposing to build a coal export terminal on an existing industrial site. This terminal will allow for a prime piece of working waterfront to actually be utilized and generate positive economic benefits in our community. It’s about time! The opening of Millennium Bulk Terminals proposed coal export facility will have a significantly positive impact not only on the state of Washington but the entire country. So I not only urge you to keep this permitting process moving forward at an efficient pace, but to also to accept the DEIS as sufficient. Thank you.
