Allow me to voice my strong support for the proposed port at Longview. We need to move on with the environmental study as quickly as possible.

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 letting me submit my opinions and show my support for the project.

Sincerely, Gordie Koloski Gordie Koloski gkoloski@peabodyenergy.com
