I appreciate being able to comment on the Longview port proposal and wish to add my support to those who wish to see this terminal open and operating as soon as possible.
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.
When faced with a poor economic outlook, one must look for ways to improve the situation. Millennium Bulk Terminals proposed project at Longview offers a solution and deserves a fair scoping process. Thank you.
