Submission Text
I am a Longview native since 1952, and I have asthma. I have seen the air get cleaned up over the years, and I know there is still work to do on this topic. Coal would not only make air quality worse, but it would mess up transportation. Every morning I drive over the Lewis & Clark Bridge to go to work. Trains would ruin this already long commute. The jobs this city would eventually have (under 100) would not be worth the cost of living with this harmful nightmare called coal. Let's look for other industry instead. We can do better!
