It's with great enthusiasm that I write today urging timely study of the environmental study that will get Millennium Bulk Terminals port off the ground and under construction. We need the jobs this terminal will provide.

Cowlitz County has a chronically high unemployment rate. There are environmental impacts of building trades and longshore workers having to travel as far as the Port of Seattle for work on a daily basis, instead of going to a job at Millennium. The impacts and air emissions related to no longer commuting to Seattle and Portland for work should be noted as an environmental benefit of the project.

Thank you for accepting comments for this important proposal. The Millennium project will do a great deal for the economic outlook of this country. Let's get Americans back to work!

Sincerely,Terry Hagin Terry Hagin hagintmkj@comcast.net
