Submission Text
Let's get moving on the Longview coal export terminal! This project has been on hold for four years awaiting permits. These environmental studies need to get moving. This draft EIS is exhaustive and quite frankly, overreaching. For instance, because the proposal is a terminal proposal, the use of the bulk commodity by a third party is a superseding and intervening cause to the combustion of coal. As a result of these superseding causes, the construction and operation of the terminal is not a proximate cause of the combustion of coal. Enough already! Thank you for reviewing my comments. This project is deserving of an impartial EIS and should not experience further delays.
