Submission Text
The world needs coal and it might as well come from the United States. We have the resources and Millennium Bulk Terminals has a plan to make it happen at Longview. Please support the environmental study. Railroads have always been a part of our community. While rail traffic can create some inconvenience as we wait for a train to pass, the railroad means we can get goods to market. This is essential to support the jobs and taxes that sustain our community. Rail traffic increases and decreases over time. The Draft EIS did not need to consider rail traffic in states beyond WA, but now that its done, I support the final EIS and progress for this project. Millennium Bulk Terminals EIS should be thorough but held to the same standards as any other port proposal. We need to do everything we can to strengthen and grow the economy of Washington and the west in general. The project proposed will do just that. Thank you.
