Thank you for the opportunity to submit a comment regarding the scoping for Millennium Bulk Terminals coal export facility. I strongly support the environmental study and the thousands of jobs this project will create.

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.

The important thing is that the concerns people have of the proposed project that Millennium Bulk Terminals is offering will be addressed responsibly. Exporting at Millennium is needed now to bring a tremendous amount of good paying jobs and increase tax revenue to the local area. I ask that you keep the permitting process at an expeditious manner. Thank you.

Sincerely, Timothy Uselman tjuselman@hotmail.com
