I have a local business that provides from 10 to 50 jobs depending on the economy. I think that the rail road would be great for the uintah basin. It will not only create hundreds of jobs, but will open this area to other sectors. from improving our oil and gas to manufacturing and so on. It will help the farming and ranching to reach out to other areas. The price for shipping will drop helping us in many ways. Railroad tracks have crossed america for hundreds of years. It will also lower the amounts of trucks on our high ways. This will reduce accidents and amount of game killed on our roads. In my opinion the rail will be the best thing that could happen to our area. As it will give us a more secure economy than we have ever had in our history of boom and bust cycles. when you have a more sustainable economy you have better schools and stores and oportunities.
