The Millennium Bulk Terminals proposed coal export terminal should be approved and the port should be allowed to move forward. It's good for Washington and her neighbors.
Washington is highly dependent on trade, and Cowlitz County desperately needs family wage jobs. An EIS that includes newly-invented forms of navel gazing should not have been necessary for a transportation infrastructure project that will facilitate foreign trade and create good jobs for our community. We need this project to move forward without further delays or unprecedented permit conditions.
The growing worldwide trade market needs an accessible, dependable, and conscientious facility to conduct business. I appreciate the planning Millennium Bulk Terminals has exhibited in its proposal for the project in Longview and wish to thank the agencies for its consideration in moving this project forward.
