Please consider my comments on the DEIS of the proposed Cowlitz County coal export terminal. This is an excellent project and one that will bring broad-ranging economic benefits to Washington and to the national economic outlook for years to come.
Cowlitz County has a chronically high unemployment rate. There are environmental impacts of building trades and longshore workers having to travel as far as the Port of Seattle for work on a daily basis, instead of going to a job at Millennium. Let’s keep our jobs local!
Millennium Bulk Terminals has done a great deal to assure that environmental protections are put in place for its proposed import/export terminal. I see Millennium as being an asset to the surrounding communities and the economic outlook of our nation as a whole. Please see that this project is allowed to proceed.
