Submission Text
PLEASE do NOT construct the Uinta Basin Railway. We already have so many sources of pollution in our state, we surely don't need any more. Fossil fuels are the major source of pollution in Utah. Building this railroad to facilitate extraction and transportation of more fossil fuels will be a grave mistake. It will negatively impact wildlife, our air, our water, as well as our people. I've struggled for 19 years with an autoimmune disorder that has diminished my lung capacity by two thirds of normal. This has made even walking a challenge. There are others like me, plus many that suffer from asthma and other lung conditions that are aggravated by more pollution. PLEASE don't make our lives harder by building this railroad. Thank you for your time and consideration!
