Submission Text
My name is James Willis I am a local resident and local business man. I am writing to voice my support of the long needed rail way. As you know Duchense & Uintah has two industries Oil & Gas, and farming with little opportunity for anything else. I have believed for many years with out a decent airport and rail head we would be forever limited. We have reopened the airport and now we need progress the rail head. The opportunities such an event would bring are limitless in my mind. Where there are those who believe the risk are too great, need to understand that risk can be mitigated as a former 43 year Oil & Gas man I have seen it many times all over the world, we can do it. We (the Basin) need this opportunity to grow and prosper. Please count myself and my family as supports and believers in the need for this project approval and development.

Thank you for your time,
James D Willis
