Please begin the environmental study for Millennium Bulk Terminals coal export facility. There are many benefits of the project that the community is waiting for.

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.

So let's get moving as quickly as possible to make this project happen. It's what's best for Washington, and best for our economy and tax base.
