This comment is addressed to: All agencies
The proposed coal export facility at the Millennium Bulk Terminal (MBT) should receive the same comprehensive, programmatic environmental review as the Gateway Pacific Terminal at Cherry Point, in particular the environmental and economic impacts to Washington State that would result from the combustion of coal transported through the MBT.
Exempting the MBT from such a review would create an inconsistent standard that would needlessly confuse future carbon export permitting.
