I'm writing in support of Millennium Bulk Terminals coal export terminal in southwest Washington. I recommend you move forward now that the draft environmental study is complete. It will create jobs and economic benefit for a wide region.
This project is exactly the kind of economic boost that the state really needs. The benefits are numerous. The terminal would create jobs, generate significant new tax revenue, and help attract businesses to our area. In many ways, it can be a source of continued growth for years to come. It is tough to believe that a project with an obvious upside like this has been held up for so long. Those in charge should view this project for its benefits to the community and see it through to the finish. Our citizens are counting on it.
Thanks for considering my comments.
