I write today in support of Millennium Bulk Terminals coal export terminal. This is a project that is easy to support because it will benefit families both within and outside of its southwest Washington location. The project presents a path to employment for manyÃ¢â‚â€let's makes it happen.
When the trains are loaded in Montana, Millennium puts a liquid coverÃ¢â‚â€like a glueÃ¢â‚â€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 opening of Millennium Bulk Terminals proposed coal export facility will have a significantly positive impact not only on the state of Washington but the entire country. So I not only urge you to keep this permitting process moving forward at an efficient pace, but to also keep the scope within reason. Thank you.
Sincerely, Steven Miller Steven Miller minerescue 372@Yahoo.com
