They don't put out no where near as much emissions as before. Not only energy, but your talking about taking away jobs that these men and women depend on for income. Are you prepare

The environmental study for the Cowlitz County port should be completed expeditiously. Any American operation that puts people back to work should be supported in these tough economic times.

Millennium Bulk Terminals have been actively engaging the community of Longview for the three years they have been at the old Reynold's site. Recent SEPA more limited environmental reviews for shipping terminals with similar rail traffic, vessel traffic and GHG emissions along the Columbia River should be used as guides for developing the scope of the SEPA review for the Millennium Project, such as the recent grain terminal approvals.

Millennium Bulk Terminals scoping should be thorough but held to the same standards as any other port proposal. We need to do everything we can to strengthen and grow the economy of Washington and the west in general. The project proposed will do just that. Thank you.
