Submission Text
I am in favor of the proposed Railroad linking the Uintah Basin with a national rail system. It will provide much needed Transportation to export our petroleum products. What we fail to see is the ripple effect of this transportation link. These unforeseen benefits will come but only after the rail line is in place. Men of vision have brought it to this stage against all odds from the environmental lobby. If these people had their way we would not have had the transcontinental railway either. We would not have dams or irrigation systems that feed all of us jobs and a a great standard of living the envy of the world.The same forces against this rail line have guaranteed government jobs such that they could care less about the security of our citizens. I care about the future economic health of this region and want the men,sons and grandsons of all families to be able to stay in this beautiful place to raise their families. Those that oppose this rail line say it will damage the ecology of this or that and make it ugly and noisy . I say it is they and they alone that make this wonderful place ugly and noisy with their endless doubt. Let the men of vision lay their railroad!!.
