LONGVIEW — Five hearings are planned across Washington in the next month to take public comment on a proposed coal-export terminal at Longview.

The Daily News reports that thousands of people are expected at the first hearing Tuesday in Longview.

The $643 million Millennium Bulk Terminals dock pits business and labor interests that favor jobs against environmental groups concerned about dust and traffic congestion locally and the effect of burning coal globally.

Ambre Energy wants to ship coal from Montana and Wyoming to markets in Asia. Other hearings on the Longview project will be held in Spokane, Pasco, Tacoma and Vancouver, Wash.

Two other Northwest terminals are under consideration — at Cherry Point near Bellingham and near Clatskanie, Ore.
