Please begin the environmental study for Millennium Bulk Terminals coal export facility. There are many benefits of the project that the community is waiting for.

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.

Thank you for accepting comments for this important proposal. The Millennium project will do a great deal for the economic outlook of this country. Let's get Americans back to work! My husband would 1 of many people this would provide a full time job for. He would be able to provide food on the table and keep a roof over our heads. We could provide a bright future for our kids.

Sincerely, Ivy Masters
