Submission Text
In my opinion the Uinta Basin Railroad is a total boondoggle. The funds are not intended to increase coal mining and distribution. This project totally defeats what they were intended for. These funds could be far better used by helping the people in these areas develop better jobs that will be around in the future. Fossil fuels are really a dying energy and to extend them any longer is bad for the environment and for the people of these counties. Let's use these funds to help the people that were impacted by the loss of these jobs due to their replacement by superior renewable energy sources. Please choose the no-action alternative.
