The Millennium Bulk Terminals proposed coal export terminal should be approved and the port should be allowed to move forward. It's good for Washington and her neighbors.
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!
Here I see an opportunity to return many critically needed jobs to Washington State. It is paramount for the local, state, and national economies to seize every option they have to aid in their recovery. I urge you to take these comments in consideration and let’s get Millennium Bulk Terminals to begin hiring and exporting.
Furthermore, I feel that a thriving economy will help fight Longview's crime and drug epidemic by giving young people hope that a good paying job can be in their future which will allow dreams of home ownership and raising a family to become a reality.
