STATEMENT: RESPONSE TO GROUPS FILING TO INTERVENE IN DNR APPEAL
“The motion filed to intervene in the lawsuit is an attempt by opponents of our project to further delay a straightforward administrative change.
The entities who filed this litigation are claiming they represent Northwest families, but they are giving nothing to the thousands of citizens who testified and commented in support of our project. They have no proposal to create jobs for Northwest families. Millennium has been providing family wage jobs for six years to clean-up and make improvements to our 70 year old industrial site while also supporting trade in Washington State.
We remain committed to build a world-class port in Longview that creates more family wage jobs and generates millions in tax revenue while meeting strict local, state and federal environmental standards.”
– Bill Chapman, President and CEO, Millennium Bulk Terminals-Longview
