Submission Text
Taxpayers need an individual review of the Cowlitz County MBTL, not a global review which would be unprecedented, unecessary and inappropriate. This project will benefit all Washingtonians in several key areas: 1. Jobs - and remember please, some 40 percent of Washington jobs are related to trade; 2. the proposed terminals will draw private investment in our state trade infrastructure; 3. a competitive trade hub such as proposed will have a strong and positive economic ripple effect throughout the state economy. Protect, expand Washington jobs by approving an individual review of the MBTL!
