Submission Text
I would like to add my support to the proposed port at Longview and ask that the DEIS be accepted as thorough and sufficient. Washington consumers know the meaning of hard work. We clock in and out every single day to ensure that our families have food on the table, a roof over their heads and other simple luxuries that support survival. That is why when an opportunity like Millennium Bulk Terminal project comes along that can offer more economic support through additional good-paying jobs and local revenue, we’re quick to sign our support. Idling approval of MBT any longer is idling a chance to give households across Washington a better way of life. So I urge simply and directly: forgo any further delay on MBT. Consumers like myself are ready to utilize its potential. It is important that regulatory agencies keep the playing field level by being fair and consistent. The permitting process for this coal export terminal should be similar to other export terminals.
