Submission Text
I am in support of the Uinta Basin Railway Project. Every year, railroads save consumers billions of dollars while reducing energy consumption and pollution, lowering greenhouse gas emissions, cutting highway gridlock and reducing the high costs to taxpayers of highway construction and maintenance. Freight railroads mean more jobs and a stronger economy. This is greatly needed in the Uinta Basin as transportation has always been a major issue in getting our commodities (primarily oil and gas) out. This would diversify a historically struggling economy and provide stability to those that call the Uinta Basin home. I can see a brighter future with the Uinta Basin Railway.
