Thank you for this opportunity to voice my support of Millennium Bulk Terminals - Longview project. This port will benefit the economy of the region, and that of the nation.
This review process is unprecedented. To single out a particular commodity does not make economic sense. Agriculture goods as well as many other exported commodities use rail traffic, truck traffic, and marine cargo to get their items to markets around the world. This draft EIS for Millennium’s proposal is unprecedented and has far reaching economic implications.
Thank you for taking my comment and for providing the opportunity to weigh in. I believe strongly in this project and hope that you will consider the strong commitment Millennium has made to restoring and protecting the environment in our community.
