I support American jobs and the proposed port at Longview will create much needed employment for hundreds of Americans. Please include my comments as part of the public response to Millennium Bulk Terminals plan. The EIS should acknowledge that Millennium is situated in a "heavy industrial" zone. If not developed as a coal export facility its development will have similar impacts in terms of rail impacts and possibly more negative impacts in terms of road congestion and/or emissions if developed into a manufacturing facility. Despite some negative opinions, this permitting process will produce facts that show a modern port can be planned by a company, then evaluated by an agency to provide ways for production portals, while at the same time protecting the environment and enhancing the socio-economics of a region. It will be a job well done! Sincerely, Julie Jones mtfrmgrl@hotmail.com
