The environmental study for the Cowlitz County port should be completed expeditiously. Any American operation that puts people back to work should be supported in these tough economic times.

When the trains are loaded in Montana, Millennium puts a liquid coverâ??like a glueâ??on top of the cars. This eliminates a lot of the coal dust that would normally come off of train cars. Environmental reports have already been done for many of the shipping processes. These reports should be relied upon and incorporated into the EIS for Millennium's proposal. Don't feel like you need to recreate the wheel and further delay much-needed private investment! Remember what matters and keep the focus local!

I appreciate the opportunity to add my thoughts to the public comment period. The agencies should proceed to the next phase as quickly as possible.

Sincerely, Dale Brett padeyb@comcast.net
