Like the rest of the nation, Washington is suffering economically. I wish to voice my support for the proposed port at Millennium because I would like to see more projects like this be successful so that our economy can benefit.

In America now everything is upside down with no common sense prevailing. Lets use common sense and approve the coal export terminal which will help the economy of America and Washington state.

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.

Now's the time to utilize trade infrastructure. The Millennium Bulk Terminals project is one step closer to being able to participate in this vital business. Thanks to the agencies for considering my comments.
