I'm writing in support of Millennium Bulk Terminals coal export terminal in southwest Washington. I recommend you move forward with the environmental study, which will create jobs and economic benefit for a wide region. Ecology should study train traffic consistent with the SEPA reviews for other recent terminal projects that increased rail traffic. Ecology should study greenhouse gas emissions for the Millennium project consistent with its approach for other SEPA reviews. Millennium already handles coal at their site, and they have done so for more than 70 years. This is not a broad departure from current industrial uses and should be treated as such. I believe they are a good neighbor and their environmental review should be treated like every other commodity down at the Port of Longview. We need more good corporate citizens in Longview. Thank you for letting me submit my opinions and show my support for the project. Sincerely, Steve Little steven.little52@gmail.com
