I appreciate the agencies offering this opportunity to comment on Millennium Bulk Terminals DEIS. The port at Longview will bring many good paying jobs to Washington and will encourage the development of our natural resources nationwide, helping to lift us out of our current nationwide economic depression.
Cowlitz County has a chronically high unemployment rate. There are environmental impacts of building trades and longshore workers having to travel as far as the Port of Seattle for work on a daily basis, instead of going to a job at Millennium. Let’s keep our jobs local!
Keep this process moving. We need a fair environmental review for this project no different than any other import/export facility.
