Let's get moving on the Longview coal export terminal! This project has been on hold for over a year and a half awaiting study. These environmental studies need to get moving.

I urge you to first look at the facts when considering extent of the EIS. We already know that the terminal is unlikely to cause adverse impacts at the nearest sensitive air quality receptors. Considering the conservative nature of the emission rates and ability to manage dust generating activities, the impact on local air quality due to the coal terminal expansion is likely to be insignificant.

The growing worldwide trade market needs an accessible, dependable, and conscientious facility to conduct business. I appreciate the planning Millennium Bulk Terminals has exhibited in its proposal for the project in Longview and wish to thank the agencies for its consideration in moving this project forward.

Sincerely, larry larry maggard 1972lenny@live.com
