Allow me to submit my comments regarding Millennium Bulk Terminals proposed port at Longview. I fully support this project. The scoping decision should ensure that the EIS recognizes the historic ebb and flow of rail traffic, and that the EIS recognizes the role of the railroad and the jurisdiction of the federal government in relation to rail operations. The scoping decision should recognize the operation of the rail system includes all forms of cargo, with or without coal exports as part of the No-Action Alternative. The normal growth of rail commodities and the use of the rail system at full capacity must be assumed as a background condition and/or included as part of the no action alternative. 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!
