As Special Counsel to the Office of Tribal Attorney for the Swinomish Indian Tribal Community, we submit this card on behalf of Swinomish to create a record of support for the Columbia River Intertribal Fish Commission and its member tribes as they comment upon the Draft EIS for the Millennium Bulk Terminals. Swinomish supports and incorporates by reference CRITFC's comments concerning the impacts of this proposal, especially with respect to impacts to treaty resources.
In the near future, Swinomish may follow up with a letter to Director Bellon requesting government-to-government consultation with respect to the impacts of this project on Swinomish treaty fishing rights in the Salish Sea. A separate letter submitted by our firm on our own behalf details some of the impacts to the Salish Sea from the Millennium project.
