I support American jobs and the proposed port at Longview will create much needed employment for hundreds of Americans. Please include my comments as part of the public response to Millennium Bulk Terminals plan.
This review process is unprecedented. To single out a particular commodity does not make economic sense. Agriculture goods as well as many other exported commodities use rail traffic, truck traffic, and marine cargo to get their items to markets around the world. This draft EIS for Millennium’s proposal is unprecedented and has far reaching economic implications.
This project will create additional revenue for a state that, like many others, can really use the economic boost. Through the entire construction process it will employ a significant amount of people and go a long way toward revitalizing Washington. I feel we should make this coal export terminal a reality. Thank you for considering my comments.
