Our economy and our families are suffering. We can do something about this by supporting the proposed port at Longview and completing the environmental study that will put people to work quickly and will keep them gainfully employed for years to come.

Millennium Bulk Terminals have been actively engaging the community of Longview for the three years they have been at the old Reynold's site. Recent SEPA more limited environmental reviews for shipping terminals with similar rail traffic, vessel traffic and GHG emissions along the Columbia River should be used as guides for developing the scope of the SEPA review for the Millennium Project, such as the recent grain terminal approvals.

I can't think of one good reason why this port shouldn't move forward. I hope my comments will be considered and added to those of others asking for approval of this great project.
