support American jobs and the proposed port at Longview will create much needed employment for hundreds of Americans. Please include my comments as part of the public response to Millennium Bulk Terminals plan.
The Millennium Bulk Terminals Project in Longview is a perfect example of an opportunity that could provide the positive and necessary transformation of a long depressed region. I encourage you not to delay moving the project forward. Let’s be clear â€" the project should and will go through careful review to ensure compliance with existing laws. But I urge you not to put up new road blocks to the hundreds of middle class jobs and millions in tax revenues this project will bring to the region. These projects should be reviewed like any other project â€" without special bias based on the type of commodity being exported. Our community cannot afford to delay the jobs that this project will bring.
Enough with the schedule delays, bring this process to a close.
