Submission Text
The Department of Ecology should speedily complete the permitting for Millennium Bulk Terminals. 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. Despite some negative opinions, this permitting process will produce facts that show a modern port can be planned by a company, then evaluated by an agency to provide ways for production portals, while at the same time protecting the environment and enhancing the socio-economics of a region. It will be a job well done!
