Submission Text
Americans urgently need jobs and Millennium Bulk Terminals is ready to provide them. Please approve a reasonable response for the environmental study and help get Americans back to work. An excessive review process will further impede the creation of jobs where they are so desperately needed. Cowlitz County has one of the worst unemployment rates in the state, at 8 percent. Solving this jobs crisis needs to be the foremost priority of our government. And, indeed, we can have both economic growth and a healthy environment. Millennium is creating hundreds of family-wage jobs AND cleaning up the old Reynolds site, maintaining the health of the Columbia River and using state-of-the-art covered loading and unloading systems at its terminal. We need to move this project along. Thank you for your consideration.
