I support a comprehensive environmental review of the proposed Millennium Bulk Terminal in Longview and want to underscores my strong support for the approval of this project. The Millennium terminal will ensure Washington can maintain and grow its trade infrastructure. Green lighting this terminal would increase our ability to ship products abroad to growing markets, thereby spurring greater investments at home. Washington has long depended on trade and exports as a vital part of our economy, directly and indirectly creating 40 percent of all our state's jobs. Ushering in developments like Millennium Bulk Terminals - now thoroughly reviewed and vetted - will provide critical economic opportunities for local communities throughout Washington. Now that a thorough review is complete, I strongly urge final approval of Millennium Bulk Terminal.
