Submission Text
I want to voice my support for the proposed Millennium Bulk Terminal export facility in Longview. I want to commend you for such an in-depth environmental review. With this exhaustive review, I am confident that the project will meet Washington’s already high environmental standards. However, we must also keep in mind our economy and the livelihoods of our citizens. The Millennium terminal will positively impact Washington for years to come. Additionally, the tax revenues from the project will support projects and services for the state’s citizens. The project also offers an opportunity to expand our ports, ensure that jobs are created and preserved, stimulate growth in the local and regional economy. Thank you for considering my comment.
