Submission Text
Joshua, Getting a railway will be a great benefit to our communities here in the Uintah Basin not only through the added benefit of exporting materials out of our area but also being able to receive more items. This will most definitely help our environment by reducing the amount of semis on the road and thus improving our air quality. I would also expect we would see a decline in the amount of auto fatalities as many of these accidents involve semis. I fully support this proposal and am excited for the new opportunities it will bring. Sincerely, Marlin Michaelson
