Americans urgently need jobs and Millennium Bulk Terminals is ready to provide them. Please approve a reasonable project scope for the environmental study and help get Americans back to work. I urge you to first look at the facts when considering extent of the EIS. We already know that the terminal is unlikely to cause adverse impacts at the nearest sensitive air quality receptors. Considering the conservative nature of the emission rates and ability to manage dust generating activities, the impact on local air quality due to the coal terminal expansion is likely to be insignificant. The important thing is that the concerns people have of the proposed project that Millennium Bulk Terminals is offering will be addressed responsibly. Exporting at Millennium is needed now to bring a tremendous amount of good paying jobs and increase tax revenue to the local area. I ask that you keep the permitting process at an expeditious manner. Thank you. Sincerely, Thomas Roussel
