Millennium Bulk Terminals has proposed a coal export terminal at Longview that is both environmentally-sound and economically beneficial. I ask that you approve this project and the environmental study without delay. Ecology should defer to the federal government for environmental review and permit decisions for issues that pertain to or would affect interstate commerce, such as rail capacity. Ultimately, global warming and the impact of fossil fuels on the environment are national government and international government to government issues and should not be considered in a local development EIS. So let's get moving as quickly as possible to make this project happen. It's what's best for Washington, and best for our economy and tax base. Sincerely, David Morris djmcoal@aol.com
