I support American jobs and the proposed port at Longview will create much needed employment for hundreds of Americans. Please include my comments as part of the public response to Millennium Bulk Terminals plan.

Ecology should defer to the federal government for environmental review and permit decisions for issues that pertain to or would affect interstate commerce, such as rail capacity. Ultimately, global warming and the impact of fossil fuels on the environment are national government and international government to government issues and should not be considered in a local development EIS.

Millennium Bulk Terminals scoping should be thorough but held to the same standards as any other port proposal. We need to do everything we can to strengthen and grow the economy of Washington and the west in general. The project proposed will do just that. Thank you.

Sincerely, Scot Dunn scot.dunn@att.net
