Our economy and our families are suffering. We can do something about this by supporting the proposed port at Longview and completing the environmental study that will put people to work quickly and will keep them gainfully employed for years to come.

The scoping decision should include a timetable for issuance of a Draft EIS and a final EIS. Ecology's SEPA Rules require a final EIS to be issued "as close as possible" to the time that Millennium submitted its proposal. Scoping started more than 18 months after the application was submitted. The lead agencies must work to issue a Draft EIS within one year of the start of scoping, and a final EIS within 18 months from the start of scoping.

Thank you for accepting comments for this important proposal. The Millennium project will do a great deal for the economic outlook of this country. Let's get Americans back to work!

Sincerely,Isaac King Isaac King gracefcc@aol.com
