I appreciate the agencies offering this opportunity to comment on Millennium Bulk Terminals scoping. The port at Longview will bring many good paying jobs to Washington and will encourage the development of our natural resources nationwide, helping to lift us out of our current nationwide economic depression.

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.

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, Lee Ann Adkins laadkins@atsone.com
