Thank you for the opportunity to submit a comment regarding the scoping for Millennium Bulk Terminals coal export facility. I strongly support the environmental study and the thousands of jobs this project will create. The scoping decision should include a timetable for issuance of a Draft EIS and a final EIS. Ecology's SEPA Rules require a final EIS to be issued "as close as possible" to the time that Millennium submitted its proposal. Scoping started more than 18 months after the application was submitted. The lead agencies must work to issue a Draft EIS within one year of the start of scoping, and a final EIS within 18 months from the start of scoping. Thank you for accepting comments for this important proposal. The Millennium project will do a great deal for the economic outlook of this country. Let's get Americans back to work! Sincerely,Michael Maack Michel maack mmaack@selwaycorp.com
