I appreciate being able to comment on the Longview port proposal and wish to add my support to those who wish to see this terminal open and operating as soon as possible. When the trains are loaded in Montana, Millennium puts a liquid coverââ‚”like a glueââ‚”on top of the cars. This eliminates a lot of the coal dust that would normally come off of train cars. Environmental reports have already been done for many of the shipping processes. These reports should be relied upon and incorporated into the EIS for Millennium's proposal. Don't feel like you need to recreate the wheel and further delay much-needed private investment! Remember what matters and keep the focus local! Thank you for accepting comments for this important project. Please make the necessary steps to move forward on its approval as soon as possible. Sincerely, Chris Cooper Chris Cooper christopher.cooper@tenova.com
