Submission Text
The Millennium Bulk Terminals proposed coal export terminal should be approved and the port should be allowed to move forward. It's good for Washington and her neighbors. Railroads have always been a part of our community. While rail traffic can create some inconvenience as we wait for a train to pass, the railroad means we can get goods to market. This is essential to support the jobs and taxes that sustain our community. Rail traffic increases and decreases over time. The Draft EIS did not need to consider rail traffic in states beyond WA, but now that its done, I support the final EIS and progress for this project. Thanks for review and considering my comments. I believe this is important work and will be done fairly by your agency.
