Submission Text
As a resident of Tacoma Washington, a long term care social worker who sees the disease impacts of particulates, parent of four and mom to a child who is a childhood cancer survivor, I would like to voice my opposition to the proposed Longview Marine Terminal and subsequent 16 coal trains per day that would be traveling through my city. Diesel engine particulates and coal particulates are known carcinogens. Washington businesses and policy makers should instead focus on job creation and energy production from clean energy industries. Thanks!
