I would like to contribute to the public commentary on the Longview port proposal and voice my support for the environmental study. Please support this proposal and help get this project moving.

Millennium Bulk Terminals have been actively engaging the community of Longview for the three years they have been at the old Reynold's site. Recent SEPA more limited environmental reviews for shipping terminals with similar rail traffic, vessel traffic and GHG emissions along the Columbia River should be used as guides for developing the scope of the SEPA review for the Millennium Project, such as the recent grain terminal approvals.

Creating jobs cannot and should not take a backseat to narrow-minded environmental interests that consider the well-fare of American families un-important.

Congratulations on starting the first stage to developing a Draft Environmental Impact Statement. I'm certain the scope will clearly outline a project deserving support. Thank you for accepting public comment in this matter. I hope this project can commence in short order.

Sincerely, M. Bannon M. Bannon Mamgoos4@verizon.net
