Here are my comments on the Millennium coal export terminal. I support the project and the jobs and tax revenues it will provide.
Transportation of coal by rail from mines in Wyoming, Montana and elsewhere to Longview will make use of existing rail transportation infrastructure that is part of a nationwide commercial transportation system. Further, rail traffic across Washington in down. The railroad companies are in the business of managing rail capacity and don’t need to be told how to run its business. The rail line was unnecessarily studied get on with it already.
This is an old industrial property being redeveloped. Keep the review to what is normal and factual.
