My comments pertain to the draft EIS for the Longview coal export facility. I hope you will give them good consideration.
Coal exports are a huge opportunity for the Northwest. The infrastructure coal companies are creating will expand trade of all kinds, from apples to software. At a time of increased competition from both West and East Coast ports, Washington needs to seize these opportunities to expand trade and create thousands of family-wage jobs.
I’ll look forward to updates.
