I just want to say that I think the railroad is so important to the economy in Uintah Basin area. There are so many people out of work and so many people and businesses hurting and closing. The railroad will help bring work to our area. There will be environmental effects no matter which way the railroad goes, but when you weigh that against the damage that it will cause to the people who live here its not really an issue. The good for majority of the People must considered too! There are railroads networking all across the nation and it has helped bring prosperity to every place they touch! With Joe Biden as our future president and dealing with the higher taxes he has promised, we are going to need more help than ever to keep our citizens working and being able to feed and house their families, and help keep our businesses from going bankrupt. The railroad will provide much needed help. Please pass the building of this railroad! We need it- we need it- we need it! Thank you Thank you for all the work you all have put into this project and the vision you have for prosperity for all of us.Karen Howcroft
