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. Cowlitz County has a surplus of industrial sites which impedes the development of the Reynolds Smelter site (due to cost of remediating and redeveloping a brownfield site). The "no action" alternative should consider the negative impact an underutilized site has on other potential sites specifically including the City of Longview's Mint Farm industrial park. 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!
