Submission Text
The environmental study for the Longview port should be accepted as sufficient sooner rather than later. I support this plan and the many positive economic and environmental benefits it will reap. I appreciate the time and effort that must go into creating an environmental impact statement. Coal should not be treated differently than other commodities. In today's economic climate, the importance of adding a significant amount of family wage jobs should not be taken lightly. Millennium’s proposal is showing a commitment to being environmentally responsible, making safety a priority, and helping fuel our economy which is what we need. Please take these things in consideration while deciding the scope of this project. Thank you for your time.
