Submission Text
Hi, I have deep family ties to the Uinta Basin and I strongly oppose this railway, with the cumulative destructive effects on land and wildlife. It's time to bring Utah into the 21st century and into reality, one in which fossil fuel use and development will decline. I know the communities of the Uinta Basin need to have an economic base, and now is the time to re-imagine and create a new future. The huge amount of money that would be spent on this railroad could be used for much more productive endeavors to ensure the long-term health and welfare of the Uinta Basin and its residents.
