Longview is a town built on natural resources and import/export. I believe this project is a perfect fit for our community.
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 â€" get on with it already.
We must support Americans looking for work. Millennium Bulk Terminals is one way to do that. Please don’t hold them up any longer.
