Our environment is important to our quality of life, but equally important is the ability to make a living. The proposed coal export terminal in Cowlitz County will strike the right balance between environmental stewardship and economic growth. It should be allowed to move forward.
Millennium already handles coal at their site, and they have done so for more than 70 years. This is not a broad departure from current industrial uses and shouldn’t have been treated so. I believe they are a good neighbor and their environmental review should be treated like every other commodity down at the Port of Longview. We need more good corporate citizens in Longview.
Thank you for reviewing my comments today.
