Our economy and our families are suffering. We can do something about this by supporting the proposed port at Longview that will put people to work quickly and will keep them gainfully employed for years to come.
At a time when Washington needs jobs, we cannot turn away the kind of opportunity that the proposed Millennium Bulk Terminal would provide. The project would create work right away during construction, and plenty more jobs would stay around to run the terminal. Plus, all of those wages generated would trickle back into our local and state economies. At a time when our state unemployment rates are below the national average, we cannot miss big opportunities for new business like this one.
Thanks again to the agencies for allowing public comment on this important proposal. It should continue to go forward with much enthusiasm.
