Allow me to voice my strong support for the proposed port at Longview. We need to move on as quickly as possible. The draft EIS is sufficient and complete â€" it’s time for progress.
Washington is highly dependent on trade, and Cowlitz County desperately needs family wage jobs. An EIS that includes newly-invented forms of navel gazing should not have been necessary for a transportation infrastructure project that will facilitate foreign trade and create good jobs for our community. We need this project to move forward without further delays or unprecedented permit conditions.
I’m certain the draft EIS will clearly outline a project deserving support. Thank you for accepting public comment in this matter. I hope this project can commence in short order.
