Thank you for the opportunity to contribute to the comments for the Millennium Bulk Terminals Longview scoping. I support this project and hope to see it up and running as soon as possible.

When the trains are loaded in Montana, Millennium puts a liquid coverââ‚”like a glueââ‚”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!

This project will create additional revenue for a state that, like many others, can really use the economic boost. Through the entire construction process it will employ a significant amount of people and go a long way toward revitalizing Washington. I feel we should make this coal export terminal a reality. Thank you for considering my comments.

Sincerely, Fred Hull fhull@rochester.rr.com
