Hello, I would just like to write a letter in my support of the Uintah Basin Railroad. As a business owner and parent I’m honestly baffled to hear that anyone would be against this project! The instability of our economy here is troubling as we try to navigate our finances and see a possible future for our families here in Duchesne. Having this railway would create that stability that we all so desperately need! Not only would it help every single business and family feel stable, it would actually help us PROSPER! We have the product here, we just have limited, expensive and dangerous transportation to get that product to where it needs to go. I know that crude oil truckers are worried about losing their work. I look at it as there will be a lot more production still needing to get to the railroads, plus the need for more water trucks and other positions to keep up with production. I see it is a positive trade off. We cannot hurt our whole community because it could require a few companies to adapt. Please move forward with this project! Our future in the Basin depends on it! Thank you, Morgan Fabrizio CF Diesel LLC Duchesne, UT
