Submission Text
The Uintah Basin Railway is needed for many reasons but will assist with creating jobs to help the local economies. The railroad will also provide a needed transportation for crude oil, agricultural products and industrial materials. Currently, all of these items are being transported by semi's which creates traffic issues with all the long haul loads being done. By creating the railway, we will also help to ensure the roads are safer for the general public by reducing the amount of long haul semi loads daily. I am in full support of this railway and I hope that those considering this see the huge benefits that it will provide to the local economies, roadways, industry, etc.
