Please consider my comments on Millennium Bulk Terminals coal export project. I am very concerned that this environmental review and permitting has taken twice as long as any other port project. Millennium already handles coal at their site, and they have done so for more than 70 years. This is not a broad departure from current industrial uses and shouldn’t have been treated so. I believe they are a good neighbor and their environmental review should be treated like every other commodity down at the Port of Longview. We need more good corporate citizens in Longview. Millennium Bulk Terminals has done a great deal to assure that environmental protections are put in place for its proposed import/export terminal. I see Millennium as being an asset to the surrounding communities and the economic outlook of our nation as a whole. Please see that this project is allowed to proceed.
