Millennium Bulk Terminals has proposed a coal export terminal at Longview that is both environmentally-sound and economically beneficial. I ask that you approve this project and the environmental study without delay.

The EIS should acknowledge that Millennium is situated in a "heavy industrial" zone. If not developed as a coal export facility its development will have similar impacts in terms of rail impacts and possibly more negative impacts in terms of road congestion and/or emissions if developed into a manufacturing facility.

Here I see an opportunity to return many critically needed jobs to Washington State. It is paramount for the local, state, and national economies to seize every option they have to aid in their recovery. I urge you to take these comments in consideration and let's get Millennium Bulk Terminals to begin hiring and exporting. Thank you.

Sincerely, Virginia Marriott ginnymarriott@comcast.net
