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.As a wheat farmer family from Eastern Washington, it is important for us to have markets overseas. The port is vital to the whole state for those markets. Thank you.
