I support American jobs in the trade industry and ask that Millennium Bulk Terminals be moved forward in a timely manner.

Unlike many port operations, Millennium occupies a location without immediate residential neighborhoods, AND it is an existing brownfield site. The EIS should acknowledge that alternate locations do not exist for situating an export coal facility with the necessary water and rail access but without "gentrification impacts" from existing or potential residential development at an exiting brownfield site along the Columbia River.

This scope is being finely crafted. The progress this port represents should not be hampered. It's time to get folks back to work!
