The Millennium Bulk Terminals will bring jobs and stability to Cowlitz County. Export projects can easily contribute to the economic recovery of this nation and this project is ready to make that happen.
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.
Thanks for considering my comments.
