Dear Agency Staff,
I support the proposed port facility in Longview. The environmental review of this project has taken too long and it is time to allow Millennium to invest $680 million in southwest Washington.
The new bulk commodity export facility will revitalize an old, underutilized industrial site. Millennium is cleaning up the site and the new project will create hundreds of jobs. Washington can have economic development while still protecting the environment.
The draft EIS for this project is extremely thorough. It is now time to put southwest Washington to work. Please publish the final EIS quickly and issue the permits.
Please, please, please! Do not let the environmentalists rule! We need coal and other fossil energies. If the environmentalists had any logical thoughts to what they were proposing by not using fossil fuels, they'd have to walk to the areas of protest instead of driving their cars or even riding their bikes!
