Thank you for the opportunity to contribute to the comments for the Millennium Bulk Terminals Longview scoping. I support this project and hope to see it up and running as soon as possible.

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.

I appreciate the opportunity to add my thoughts to the public comment period. The agencies should proceed to the next phase as quickly as possible.

Sincerely, Curtis Welch curtisrwelch@aol.com
