Submission Text
My name is Amy Hemphill, A-m-y H-e-m-p-h-i-l-l, as a resident of the Uinta Basin, member of a ranching family and an oil and gas industry employee, I would like to support the railway as we need diversification to soften the blow of our current boom-and-bust cycle.· I believe that the expansion of drilling will benefit the entire state in the form of tax revenue.· I believe the amount of pollution due to truck traffic will be reduced as a distance required to transport crude to market by truck will be reduced. I would like to echo the support given in the comments by Steve Evans.· End comment.
