Our economy and our families are suffering. We can do something about this by supporting the proposed port at Longview that will put people to work quickly and will keep them gainfully employed for years to come.
Millennium is cleaning up the former Reynolds Aluminum site and protecting the Columbia River ecosystem at no taxpayer expense. It has made a major environmental contribution to Longview and the state of Washington because it knows it’s the right thing to do. It has spared no expense with covered loading and unloading facilities at the terminal. And the coal train loads arriving at the terminal will all be covered with surfactants that effectively reduce coal dust, eliminating any serious concerns.
This project will create additional revenue for a state that, like many others, can really use the economic boost. Through the entire construction process it will employ a significant amount of people and go a long way toward revitalizing Washington. I feel we should make this coal export terminal a reality. Thank you for considering my comments.
