Americans urgently need jobs and Millennium Bulk Terminals is ready to provide them. Please approve a reasonable project scope for the environmental study and help get Americans back to work. The neighboring Port of Longview owns 275 acres at Barlow Point. Cowlitz County has long recognized that upgrades to the Reynolds Short Line were desired long before Millennium presented its proposal. To serve the industrial and export terminal areas improvements to the Reynolds short line have been desired with or without Millennium's proposal. The EIS should consider the benefits that would accrue to the Port and industrial users along Industrial Way by improvements made to the rail corridor to support Millennium's export coal facility. I can't think of one good reason why this port shouldn't move forward. I hope my comments will be considered and added to those of others asking for approval of this great project.
