Like the rest of the nation, Washington is suffering economically. I wish to voice my support for the proposed port at Millennium because I would like to see more projects like this be successful so that our economy can benefit.

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 agencies are doing a great job of evaluating Millennium Bulk Terminals port proposal. I am convinced that this project's permit should move forward without further delay.
