Submission Text
The Uinta Basin Railway (UBR) is a huge subsidy for the oil and gas industry from Utah agencies that are supposed to be using public monies to advance the public interest in rural communities. The EIS needs to consider the full impact that the new exploration, drilling, production and eventual combustion of fossil fuels will have on the environment (including air quality, water quality and climate change), wildlife (including big game and sage grouse), and nearby communities.
