I am in favor of the railway project. The Uintah Basin depends on the oil and gas industry. The oil and gas industry is very unstable. The railway project is a great way to open up opportunities to expand the economy in the Uintah Basin beyond oil and gas. If the oil and gas industry goes away, so does life for most of us in the Uintah Basin. Oil and gas effects everyone in the Uintah Basin regardless if they are employed in the oil field or not. If the oil and gas industry goes away, so does the livelihood of every person in the Uintah Basin. I think it is crucial to add the railway to open up opportunities for a variety of avenues industry in the Uintah Basin.
