I would like to add my support to the proposed port at Longview and ask that the DEIS be accepted as thorough and sufficient.
At a time when Washington needs jobs, we cannot turn away the kind of opportunity that the proposed Millennium Bulk Terminal would provide. The project would create work right away during construction, and plenty more jobs would stay around to run the terminal. Plus, all of those wages generated would trickle back into our local and state economies. At a time when our state unemployment rates are below the national average, we cannot miss big opportunities for new business like this one.
I’m certain the draft EIS will clearly outline a project deserving support. Thank you for accepting public comment in this matter. I hope this project can commence in short order.
