Submission Text
As someone who treasures the natural beauty of the American west, I ask that the environmental study for the Longview port proposal be accepted as thorough and sufficient. The planning behind this project is thorough and careful and will do much for utilizing our natural resources without compromising the environment. At a time when Washington needs jobs, we cannot turn away the kind of opportunity that the proposed Millennium Bulk Terminal would provide. The project would create work right away during construction, and plenty more jobs would stay around to run the terminal. Plus, all of those wages generated would trickle back into our local and state economies. At a time when our state unemployment rates are below the national average, we cannot miss big opportunities for new business like this one. Thank you for listening.
