Like the rest of the nation, Washington is suffering economically. I wish to voice my support for the proposed port at Millennium because I would like to see more projects like this be successful so that our economy can benefit.

When considering the extent of the EIS, we should keep it to what is actually affected - Millennium Bulk Terminals site in Cowlitz County. These trains are no different than the coal cars we've transported through our state for many decades. In reality, not one ton more of coal will be used globally because of U.S. exports, and the net gain in greenhouse gas emissions is insignificant. If we don't build these terminals, energy suppliers will just look elsewhere for their supply!

Thank you for reviewing my comments. This project is deserving of an impartial scope and should not experience further delays.

Sincerely, Doug & Judy Fisher wabuckeye@centurylink.net
