Please include my comments as part of the public response to the proposed coal export terminal at Longview. This project should move forward without delay. Cowlitz County has a chronically high unemployment rate. There are environmental impacts of building trades and longshore workers having to travel as far as the Port of Seattle for work on a daily basis, instead of going to a job at Millennium. The impacts and air emissions related to no longer commuting to Seattle and Portland for work should be noted as an environmental benefit of the project. I appreciate the opportunity to add my thoughts to the public comment period. The agencies should proceed to the next phase as quickly as possible. Sincerely, Terah Burdette tburdette@archcoal.com
