Here are my comments on the Millennium coal export terminal. I support the project and the jobs and tax revenues it will provide.
Millennium has helped clean up the old Reynolds facility and the Columbia River. The old industrial site had degraded water quality and fish habitats on the river. Millennium has completely turned this around. Millennium has demonstrated a commitment to do everything in its power to contribute to the well-being of the community and local environment. If you ask people in Longview what they think of Millennium, they will tell you they are a good neighbor, good employer and responsible steward of our environment.
Keep this process moving. We need a fair environmental review for this project no different than any other import/export facility.
