Submission Text
Please include my comments as part of the public response to the proposed coal export terminal at Longview. This project should move forward without delay. The draft EIS for Millennium is exhaustive and sufficient. The project has been patiently seeking permits for five years. Southwest Washington needs family wage jobs and MBT will create them. In today's economic climate, the importance of adding a significant amount of family wage jobs should not be taken lightly. Millennium’s proposal is showing a commitment to being environmentally responsible, making safety a priority, and helping fuel our economy which is what we need. Please take these things in consideration while deciding the scope of this project. Thank you for your time.
