I would like to add my support to the proposed port at Longview and ask that the environmental study proceed rapidly.

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!

Now's the time to utilize trade infrastructure. The Millennium Bulk Terminals project is one step closer to being able to participate in this vital business. Thanks to 'll 'llthe agencies for considering my comments.

Sincerely, paul kidney paul kidney prkbk@comcast.net
