Let's get moving on the Longview coal export terminal! This project has been on hold for over a year and a half awaiting study. These environmental studies need to get moving.

Coal and other material has been coming through our area for quite some time enroute to other destinations and clearly has had little or no negative impact. I've seen the fine work that Millenium has done to clean up the Reynold's site and have seen the coal handling process. I'm satisfied that it is safe. View the work at their other sites and you will see that this company knows what they are doing. This project will bring much needed jobs and tax revenue to our area. Do not let it be delayed any longer.

Sincerely, Bob Beal
