Despite all the rhetoric to the contrary about coal exports, I firmly believe you can have both good family-wage jobs and be good stewards of the environment. It doesn’t have to be a choice of one over the other.
Millennium Bulk Terminals have been actively engaged in the community of Longview for the five years they have been at the old Reynold’s site. They are an important part of our community and economy and will do even more great work once their permits are granted.
In today's economic climate, the importance of adding a significant amount of family wage jobs should not be taken lightly. Millennium’s proposal is showing a commitment to being environmentally responsible, making safety a priority, and helping fuel our economy which is what we need. Please take these things in consideration while deciding the scope of this project. Thank you for your time.
