Let's get moving on the Longview coal export terminal! This project has been on hold for over a year and a half awaiting study. These environmental studies need to get moving. 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. I applaud the agencies work on this permit process. The results will provide a more-than thorough "hard look" at the possible impacts of the Millennium Project in Longview which is needed to keep things moving ahead. Thank you. Sincerely, Tyler Miller tyler@vcn.com
