The world needs coal and it might as well come from the United States. We have the resources and Millennium Bulk Terminals has a plan to make it happen at Longview. Please support the environmental study.
This project is exactly the kind of economic boost that the state really needs. The benefits are numerous. The terminal would create jobs, generate significant new tax revenue, and help attract businesses to our area. In many ways, it can be a source of continued growth for years to come. It is tough to believe that a project with an obvious upside like this has been held up for so long. Those in charge should view this project for its benefits to the community and see it through to the finish. Our citizens are counting on it.
Here I see an opportunity to return many critically needed jobs to Washington State. It is paramount for the local, state, and national economies to seize every option they have to aid in their recovery. I urge you to take these comments in consideration and let’s get Millennium Bulk Terminals to begin hiring and exporting. Thank you.
