I wish to add my support to those who wish to see this terminal open and operating as soon as possible. We need to expand our coal export without delay.

The "no action" alternative should consider the negative impact an underutilized site has on other potential sites specifically including the City of Longview's Mint Farm industrial park.

The agencies are doing a great job of evaluating Millennium Bulk Terminals port proposal. I am convinced that this project's permit should move forward without further delay.

Sincerely,John Lafer John Lafer
