My comments pertain to the draft EIS for the Longview coal export facility. I hope you will give them good consideration.
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.
I applaud the agencies work on this permit process. The results will provide a more-than thorough "hard look" at the possible impacts of the Millennium Project in Longview which is needed to keep things moving ahead. Thank you.
