Thank you for the opportunity to state my opinions on this important issue. Let's leave the national politics and environmental agendas out of this decision for our local economies. We need the jobs and tax revenue that these shipments will provide. There are minimal risks compared to other fuel types. Coal does not pollute rivers and streams like oil or have fire risks like natural gas. It sure does provide a lot of good to our local economies however. The country could use some more exports to counteract all the imports that we are constantly receiving. Please allow this project to continue on to help the whole Northwest area.
