Our economy and our families are suffering. We can do something about this by supporting the proposed port at Longview that will put people to work quickly and will keep them gainfully employed for years to come. This draft EIS is exhaustive and quite frankly, overreaching. For instance, because the proposal is a terminal proposal, the use of the bulk commodity by a third party is a superseding and intervening cause to the combustion of coal. As a result of these superseding causes, the construction and operation of the terminal is not a proximate cause of the combustion of coal. Enough already! The draft EIS to evaluate Millennium Bulk Terminals proposed Longview project should be kept within reason. This plan will be a positive economic stimulus for local businesses and other retail businesses. Please move forward with the process in a timely manner. It's the fair thing to do.
