Our economy and our families are suffering. We can do something about this by supporting the proposed port at Longview and completing the environmental study that will put people to work quickly and will keep them gainfully employed for years to come. 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 letting me submit my opinions and show my support for the project.
