Any project that could bring work to Vernal and that would stay in Vernal would be incredibly important to our economy. Vernal is a great place to live and raise a family, but recent economic conditions have made it all but impossible for families to remain in the area. If the railway could create long term jobs for the people of Vernal and the surrounding areas, I wholeheartedly support it.
