Let's get moving on the Longview coal export terminal! This project has been on hold for over a year and a half awaiting study. These environmental studies need to get moving.

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 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.
