I appreciate the agencies offering this opportunity to comment on Millennium Bulk Terminals scoping. The port at Longview will bring many good paying jobs to Washington and will encourage the development of our natural resources nationwide, helping to lift us out of our current nationwide economic depression.

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.

Congratulations on starting the first stage to developing a Draft Environmental Impact Statement. I'm certain the scope will clearly outline a project deserving support. Thank you for accepting public comment in this matter. I hope this project can commence in short order.

Sincerely, Bernadette Newman Bernadette Newman wmnewman@buckeye-express.com
