The Highlands neighborhood in Longview will be directly affected by the Millennium Coal Export project. This is a low-income area, where there is an existing health deficit. Many of the residents suffer from diseases such as asthma, COPD and emphysema. Many do not have health insurance. The air in their neighborhood is already compromised by near-by industries. Adding coal-dust to the mix will only exacerbate the problems. Please consider these defenseless people and do a comprehensive health investigation as part of the Environmental Impact Statement.
