Dear Mr. Wayland 

Please except this as my official support for the UINTA rail project in Utah. I am a full-time school teacher in Roosevelt Utah. I feel very blessed to have been able to make my living here. My husband my father and almost everyone I know is either directly or indirectly employed by the energy industry here. We are proud of the fact that we supply energy to America and we believe that that has helped make our country more secure and has greatly increased the ability for America to make sure That production is done in an environmentally safe way unlike other countries who do not have such strict regulations. The rail is needed to help our area diversify the transportation system. We are deeply limited both trying to diversify the economy and service other industries that are here including agriculture. This will probably be our last opportunity to bring additional transportation options to this huge region of the state of Utah that is now not served. Please help us bye giving approval to the environmental impact statement.This is a good project and my children will need these options to be able to stay in this region. Thank you for taking the time to listen to my comments.

Sincerely
Tara Maylett
