As a manufacturer based in Washington with global operations and clients, Lampson International is very concerned about the precedent that may be set by the State Department of Ecology in scoping environmental impacts of proposed projects beyond their sites and immediate surroundings. Factoring in global, end-use impacts would be detrimental to many types of Washington business enterprises and the jobs they create.

That's why we urge you to maintain fair, constrained assessments of local environmental impacts balanced with consideration of economic benefits of proposed projects like the Millennium export terminal in Longview.
