Let's get moving on the Longview coal export terminal! This project has been on hold for four years awaiting permits. These environmental studies need to get moving.
Washington can have BOTH economic growth and a healthy environment. Millennium contributes to both. It will create hundreds of family-wage jobs and has already commenced the clean up of the Reynolds Aluminum site. It will make it cheaper and faster for Washington exporters to get their goods to market and will comply with all existing environmental regulations. The company will contribute to reducing Cowlitz 8% unemployment and will use the cleanest covered loading and unloading conveyors available. And it will contribute to Longview’s quality of life at the same time as ensuring that approaching coal cars have surfactants effectively reducing coal dust to non- significant levels.
Thanks for the ability to comment. I believe the final environmental review needs to be released ASAP!
