Please consider my comments on the scope of the proposed Cowlitz County coal export terminal. This is an excellent project and one that will bring broad-ranging economic benefits to Washington and to the national economic outlook for years to come.

When considering the extent of the EIS, we should keep it to what is actually affected - Millennium Bulk Terminals site in Cowlitz County. These trains are no different than the coal cars we've transported through our state for many decades. In reality, not one ton more of coal will be used globally because of U.S. exports, and the net gain in greenhouse gas emissions is insignificant. If we don't build these terminals, energy suppliers will just look elsewhere for their supply!

This is an important project that will provide a vital role in boosting the economy and one that should be allowed to proceed in as quick of a manner as possible.
