Americans urgently need jobs and Millennium Bulk Terminals is ready to provide them. Please approve a reasonable project scope for the environmental study and help get Americans back to work.

When the trains are loaded in Montana, Millennium puts a liquid coverââ‚”like a glueââ‚”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!

The agencies are doing a great job of evaluating Millennium Bulk Terminals port proposal. I am convinced that this project's permit should move forward without further delay.
