Dear U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, WA Department of Ecology, and Cowlitz County Commission,

I strongly support the construction of a coal export terminal at Longview, WA which would transport coal on trains and ships throughout the Northwest.

This proposal would positively affect my community by increasing jobs and opportunities with more coal train traffic, benefitting existing businesses, and increasing our tax base. Trains have been delivering coal to the Centralia Steam Plant for years via trains with no known adversity to our environment.

I urge you to consider these positive impacts in the scope of the Environmental Impact Statement.

Thank you
