I appreciate being able to comment on the Longview port proposal and wish to add my support to those who wish to see this terminal open and operating as soon as possible.
When the trains are loaded in Montana, Millennium puts a liquid coverâ??like a glueâ??on top of the cars. This eliminates a lot of the coal dust that would normally come off of train cars. Environmental reports have already been done for many of the shipping processes. These reports should be relied upon and incorporated into the EIS for Millennium's proposal. Don't feel like you need to recreate the wheel and further delay much-needed private investment! Remember what matters and keep the focus local!
Millennium Bulk Terminals has done a great deal to assure that environmental protections are put in place for its proposed import/export terminal. I see Millennium as being an asset to the surrounding communities and the economic outlook of our nation as a whole. Please see that this project is allowed to proceed.
Sincerely, Kurt wise firstname.lastname@example.org
