I recommend you quickly study the Longview port, and that it be approved as soon as possible. The environmental study will clearly outline a plan that works for the benefit of jobs and conservation in Washington and that will deliver a commodity that is in demand by the worldwide electricity market.

The EIS should acknowledge that Millennium is situated in a "heavy industrial" zone. If not developed as a coal export facility its development will have similar impacts in terms of rail impacts and possibly more negative impacts in terms of road congestion and/or emissions if developed into a manufacturing facility.

It is clear to me, Millennium Bulk Terminals has a project that will have long-term positive impacts on local and regional economies in Washington. Millennium has maintained and presented ongoing efforts to uphold the current environmental regulations set for its project in Longview. I have good faith and trust this will continue and the company should be allowed to move forward without further delay. Thank you for allowing me the opportunity to comment.

Sincerely, Dennis Mosbarger dmos63@AOL.COM
