Submission Text
As a business in Roosevelt I feel very strongly that a railway connecting the Uintah Basin to the rest of the nation would be very beneficial. I have lived here for nearly 70 years and transportation for freight has always been an issue for doing business here. For any manufacturing of anything many materials have to be freighted to the basin then freighted out. With rail freight available the development of our natural resources and other industries could be increased and the economic results would be a great benefit for the area and the whole state as well. I greatly support the building of a railway to the Uintah Basin.
