U.S. Army Corps of Engineers and Washington Department of Ecology representatives,

In your consideration of coal transport through Idaho, please take your guidance from Idaho communities, as well as carefully considering health risks to children and pregnant women and elders from increased particulants and diesel exhaust. Please also consider riparian habitat stresses and climate risks.

I am very much worried about these issues as well as other long-term economic, environmental, and health costs that will arise due to our obsession with exporting our natural energy resources abroad.

Thank you for your consideration
