Allow me to submit my comments regarding Millennium Bulk Terminals proposed port at Longview. I fully support this project.

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 scoping to evaluate Millennium Bulk Terminals proposed Longview project should be kept within reason. This plan will be a positive economic stimulus for local businesses and other retail businesses. Please move forward with the process in a timely manner. It's the fair thing to do.

Sincerely, John Wright John Wright john.s.wright@cummins.com
