Millennium Bulk Terminals has proposed a coal export terminal at Longview that is both environmentally-sound and economically beneficial. I ask that you approve this project and the environmental study without delay.
Unlike many port operations, Millennium occupies a location without immediate residential neighborhoods, AND it is an existing brownfield site. It should be understood that alternate locations do not exist for situating an export coal facility with the necessary water and rail access without gentrification impacts
