I would like to add my support to the proposed port at Longview and ask that the DEIS be accepted as thorough and sufficient.
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 â€" get on with it already.
Keep this process moving. We need a fair environmental review for this project no different than any other import/export facility.
