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.
Transportation of coal by rail from mines in Wyoming, Montana and elsewhere to Longview will make use of existing rail transportation infrastructure that is part of a nationwide commercial transportation system. Further, rail traffic across Washington in down. The railroad companies are in the business of managing rail capacity and don’t need to be told how to run its business. The rail line was unnecessarily studied â€" get on with it already.
Thank you for your consideration. I look forward to seeing this project come to reality.
