I support American jobs and the proposed port at Longview will create much needed employment for hundreds of Americans. Please include my comments as part of the public response to Millennium Bulk Terminals plan.

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.

I applaud the agencies work on this permit process. The results will provide a more-than thorough "hard look" at the possible impacts of the Millennium Project in Longview which is needed to keep things moving ahead. Thank you.

Sincerely, Mike and Teresa Tario gemuno2@aol.com
