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.
Coal exports are a huge opportunity for the Northwest. The infrastructure coal companies are creating will expand trade of all kinds, from apples to software. At a time of increased competition from both West and East Coast ports, Washington needs to seize these opportunities to expand trade and create thousands of family-wage jobs.
I appreciate the opportunity to add my thoughts to the public comment period. The agencies should proceed to the next phase as quickly as possible.
