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.

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.

Our country is in a critically important place economically and I believe that what we accomplish over the next several years will either help or hinder our economic recovery. Without a doubt this proposal will help our recovery. Thank you for beginning the scoping process.
