I appreciate the opportunity to add my voice to that of others in supporting the environmental study for the proposed port at Longview. The scoping will present a clear picture of how Millennium Bulk Terminals will proceed in opening and operating this port and the economic, environmental, and social benefits of this project are deserving of approval. 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. This project will create additional revenue for a state that, like many others, can really use the economic boost. Through the entire construction process it will employ a significant amount of people and go a long way toward revitalizing Washington. I feel we should make this coal export terminal a reality. Thank you for considering my comments. I support the longview coal terminal. Sincerely, Jun Lalangan Lalang3@yahoo.com
