Submission Text
To whom it may concern: I am a longtime resident of Vernal, Utah. I benefit from the presence of the local mineral extraction industry, both personally and professionally. With that in mind, and in support of the many locals who absolutely rely on the industry, I wholeheartedly support the Uinta Basin Railroad project. I have closely monitored the progress of the project, and I have attended nearly all local meetings on the subject. I understand that there are going to be environmental impacts associated with this kind of project, but they are slight and pale in comparison to the huge economic benefit both locally and statewide. Respectfully, -- Michael D. Harrington
