Thank you for the opportunity to submit a comment regarding the scoping for Millennium Bulk Terminals coal export facility. I strongly support the environmental study and the thousands of jobs this project will create.

The EIS should acknowledge that Millennium is situated in a "heavy industrial" zone. If not developed as a coal export facility its development will have similar impacts in terms of rail impacts and possibly more negative impacts in terms of road congestion and/or emissions if developed into a manufacturing facility.

Our country is in a critically important place economically and I believe that what we accomplish over the next several years will either help or hinder our economic recovery. Without a doubt this proposal will help our recovery. Thank you for beginning the scoping process.

Sincerely, Jack Ferenci jferenci@drasurvinc.com
